After dropping a car at the Worcester Mountain end of the Skyline Trail, we returned to the Hunger/White Rock trail head to start our hike. Heading up the trail we forked left to the rocky expanse of White Rocks, described by one as like the top of a wedding cake.
We continued onto Hunger Mountain, where we encountered a few hikers, the last we were to see on the trail. The Skyline Trail is only ten years old or so, and must resemble what the Long Trail looked like in the early days: narrow and unworn. The terrain was incredibly green for late October. All being strong hikers, we made excellent time, with brief stops at the viewpoints.
