Looking up the road to Fort Mountain
Route: Access road, (Fort Mountain), access road
With poor weather moving in, I opted to do some low elevation exploring.
After finding the beginning of the access road to Fort Mountain, I found a place to park out of the way and set off jogging on snowshoes.
While the road started off gradually, it did steepen up a little bit as it switchbacked up to the top of Fort Mountain. Though it appeared there could be very nice views from adjacent the summit communications tower, snow flurries and mist obscured most of what might otherwise be seen.

Directions to trailhead: From US 202 east of Concord, take Route 28 south. Take a left onto Short Falls Road. Bear right at a five way junction onto New Rye Road. Take a left onto Swamp Road. Take a left onto Mountain View Road. Bear right at the next junction, then head around a left curve. The access road (no vehicles allowed) will be on the right shortly thereafter, with utility poles heading up it.
