Dan, Joshua Molly, and David met at 8:30 at the Richmond commuter lot and headed in two cars to the Middlesex trailhead, where we left one car and continued in the other to the Worcester trailhead.

We got on the trail at about 9:50. The day was cool and partly cloudy, but dry. We reached Worcester summit around 11:15, where we took a short break for a snack before continuing along the ridge, reaching the unnamed peak 2 miles farther down the trail around 12:40, and on to the junction with the Ridge Trail (to Stowe Pinnacle) at around 2:00.

There we had the rest of our lunches and continued along the ridge, taking in the views of Mansfield and Stowe to the west, and reaching Mt. Hunger at around 3:45. We then headed down Middlesex Trail over the steep (and fortunately dry) slabs on the east side of Mt. Hunger, reaching the care we’d left at the trailhead around 5:25.
