Looking down the old logging road to Ladd Mountain
Route: Unknown trail
After the rain and subsequent freeze up, I headed to Ladd Mountain for a quick hike.
The trail featured a breakable crust with a good 12-18" of sugar snow underneath it, resulting in slow trail breaking. The views from the near summit vista were nice as the clouds rolled out.

Looking at the Belknaps from the Ladd Mountain ledge vista
Directions to trailhead: Take Route 104 East from I-93 in New Hampton. Shortly after passing Wickwas Lake on the right, take a right onto Meredith Center Road. Shortly thereafter, take a right onto Chemung Road. A few minutes later, take a right to stay on Chemung Road (where Camp Waldron Road goes straight). Awhile after the road turns to dirt, Randlett Pond will be visible on the right. On the left, there will be a blocked off logging road with limited room (none plowed, winter 2011) for parking. The trail starts on the logging road.
