Route: ATV trail

ATV road was generally dry with a few muddy stretches that could generally be avoided. Views in all directions from the summit observation tower. The observation tower is a little wobbly with rotten decking, however the cross beams under it are solid. Pretty interesting to see the wind turbine that caught fire (still charred and not operable).

Directions to trailhead: Route 27 north from Eustis to Goldbrook Road. Bear left at 3.4 miles. Bear right at 8.5 miles. Road becomes Beaudry Road at 8.6 miles. Take a right at 9 miles onto (unsigned) road, climbing steeply and soon seeing wind turbine straight ahead. At a small clearing, a lesser used road will head left. We parked here and walked that road (increasingly narrow all the way to the summit). Most vehicles should be able to make it to the clearing as of spring 2013.
