Route: Ski trails, bushwhack, (Tenney Mountain), bushwhack, ski trails

Followed a snowshoe track to the top of the old chairlift. 5-10 inches of snowpack.

From the top of the chairlift, I bushwhacked to a boundary swatch, then when the windfarm clearcut was visible, I bushwhacked to it and across to the unmarked highpoint (either on the woodline or a bare crag...I suspect the former). Some deep drifts in some places and other places blown to the crust, but the clearcut junk was covered enough to make for smooth snowshoeing. Apart from the eerie turbine sights and sounds, there were fantastic views.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 25 West from Plymouth. At the rotary, take Route 3A South. The Tenney Mountain access road will eventually be on the right. While there is parking at the old ski area parking lots, the immediate area around the old base lodge is posted No Trespassing.
