Route: Various snowmobile and logging roads
After finishing a morning hike on Sugarloaf, we opted to do another hike. Though showing a trail from its east side on some older maps, we were unable to gain access to a Berlin trailhead to Mt. Forest. Backtracking to Route 110, we parked on a dirt road and walked up a dirt road.
The dirt road soon forked, with offroad vehicles going to the right. We stayed left on the nicer branch of the dirt road.
The road eventually petered out at a logging land (a sort ways after another logging landing, where a road headed to Jericho). We opted to follow some snowmobile signs on a grown in segment of road - this ended up being unnecessary, but we found our way to the great ledges on Mt. Forest. In hindsight, we should have gone left (downhill for a bit), as this ended up being a much nicer and more direct route. Nonetheless, eventually on the ledges, we had excellent views of Berlin and the Mahoosucs.
