Bushwhacked from Roberts Road along the bottom of the field into the woods, then up the old Mt. Mohawk ski trails (completely overgrown). Would be unpleasant bushwhacking without snow on the ground, but spring snow conditions made it ideal. Looks like there would have been a fantastic view of Monadnock when the trails were still open, nothing to see now. Continued past the top of the lift to the highpoint, which appeared to be one of three bumps in the top contour on the map. Also evidence of some sort of 4 wheeler trail on the summit.

Overall, snowpack was 4-12 inches with some barespots growing. West fast of the mountain appeared to be thawed.
