Parked at the information center in Newbury so I could get the Sunapee climb done first (parking at trail head no longer permissible). Nice cool morning/day for a solo hike and jog around Sunapee! After the sunapee mountain portion and a small road section, the trail winds through a preserve with many little trails and turn offs, thankfully almost all parts of this route were marked with the arrows for the SRK greenway trail. Nice mix of road and trail, with a nice emphasis on trail. Don’t let the route name deceive you, there is significant elevation gain on the entire loop. I filled water bottles in a stream near sunapee village and again at a small natural spring a few miles before the completion of the loop. I brought an assortment of protein bars to fuel the trip.
