entering sandwich range wilderness

Very soon after leaving the houses behind, you enter the Sandwich Range Wilderness. The boundary is clearly announced. First, there's this rustic wooden sign which reads "Entering Sandwich Range Wilderness White Mountain National Forest". Then there are two "bearing trees", marked with small yellow signs. Finally, there's a "land survey monument", which looks a bit like a giant nail with a head the size of my palm, surrounded by rocks that are spray-painted neon red. This last item has its own separate sign.

Up until this point at 0.8 miles, the trail is very tame and level. Beyond the signs, the trail begins to rise a bit.
