The Bog Mountain Trail
The Bog Mountain Trail

Route: Bog Mountain Trail

Trail was generally frozen granular with some short stretches of blue ice. I barebooted the ascent, but used Microspikes for a safe descent. Snowpack is generally 2-8 inches with a fairly firm crust (generally strong enough to support bare boots).

Directions to trailhead: From Wilmot, take Route 4A northwest, then take a right onto Stearns Road. Shortly after passing a boggy area, the Bog Mountain Trail trailhead will be on the right. There is a small pull off for parking on the left, just uphill from the trailhead.
