Andrew Brook Trail...Blue blazed. 3.8 round trip.
<br/>On mtn rd in Newbury, 3rd bridge up the road is parking and trailhead. Trail starts flat, then ascends gradually with a couple medium places. Many rock steps and stepping stones on this well maintained path. Crosses brook 3-4 times climbing thru mixed hardwoods. Eventually flattens a bit and comes into spruces. 3/4 way up is a short ladder. Trees are getting shorter now and at 1.9 miles you come out at Lake Solitude, a pleasant couple acre tarn to take a break at, between the Sunapee peaks. Follow blazes around north end of lake to trail end. Trail junction and sign...left joins Monadnock- Sunapee Greenway, white blaze, follows the lake shore south and goes about a half mile to the pretty view-less south peak of Sunapee marked by a large cairn(well, it actually runs 50 mi, to Mt Monadnock in Jaffrey NH, with open face Adirondack style shelters every 6-7 miles along the way, highly recommended, but anyway...). Turn right at the sign to ascend to White Ledges, under a 1/4 mi, and the ski area peak and trails, 3/4-1 mi, where you come out on a service rd and climb to the summit lodge, with fine views of the area.
