 Foss Mountain (Eaton, NH) 2-6-16

A neat little hike that has an added bonus (in season). Blueberries + views, what can beat that?

Ridiculously great and easy spot to watch the sunset. Blueberries are always welcome. For some reason I was under the impression it's a farm for them and picking isn't allowed. Perhaps not, and if not, one more reason to head back sooner rather than later.

I thought Foss was in the middle of that bushwhack from Tecumseh down to Dickey:

Foss Peak is on the ridge but isn't officially recognized as anything by the USGS. Foss Mountain is in Eaton and is officially recognized. http://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=136:2:0::NO:RP::

Quite the splendid views of the NH mountains from the little guy too.

There are specific areas to pick blueberries. I believe the ones in the lower fields are off limits but the summit ones are okay. I know the kiosk at the trailhead tells you where to go.
