A cool spin around Beartown State Forest starting out with the Pond Loop Trail to the Appalachian Trail (AT) up past a large high elevation beaver dam / pond, then to nearby Ledges views and on to an extensive Mt Wilcox, South AT Shelter area for lunch; a short bushwhack from the AT beyond led upward to Mt Wilcox Rd & Summit to my jogging, searching and finding 12/14ths of mt wilcox road geocaches, finally descending via the Mt Wilcox Trail to finish the day again circling Benedict Pond.
