Route: Woods roads

Woods roads were mostly dry and in good shape. A few short stretches of ice on the summit ledges, but avoidable. Nice route for trail jogging. Excellent views in just about all directions from the ledgy summit.

Some logging as taken place recently, so navigation was a little confusing. Basically, continue straight on foot at the end of Joslin Road. Upon reaching a field, follow the road left. Soon thereafter, there is a 5 way junction - go straight. Pretty straightforward after this.
