The Round Pond Trail
Route: Fire Road, Round Pond Trail, bushwhack
Trails were generally dry with some minor mud from thawing ground frost. Also some areas of footbed obscured by deep leaves.
Decided to check out Heator Mountain (the 1,808 foot peak northwest of Round Pond). Quick, open woods bushwhack from the Round Pond Trail just before the Round Pond-Piper Link junction. One can get a visual bearing on the ledges from the trail this time of year. Slight views through the trees without leaves.
