Route: Access road

Across the river from Bellows Falls, Mt. Kilburn is the southern peak of Fall Mountain. A view ledge known as Table Rock is popular amongst locals.

I took the gated access road up, crossing under the power lines, then bearing right at the pond (crossing over the outflow). When you rejoin the power lines at the top, left goes to the summit (concrete footing at the highpoint near the towers), with straight ahead leads to the ledge view a few minutes later. The ledge has a 180 degree view, ranging S-W-N, over Bellows Falls.

It looks like other carriage roads head down the east side of the mountain.

The roads were mostly snow free with the occasional patch of snow and ice. Minor mud and running water, but I never got particularly wet or muddy wearing trail runners.
