Comments
Comments: From the parking, I got on a herd path at the far west side of the lot. The herd path quickly led to a ski trail, which was blazed with yellow plastic markers an tape. This trail led me to the top of Goshen. The trail has no footbed and is steep and rough, but it is well marked to the top. There is a ski map at the summit a short distance from the recognized highpoint.

From Goshen, I followed the ridge over a few bumps towards Farr. The woods were open. From the recognized highpoint on Farr, I retraced my steps for a short distance, before dropping down toward the LT. It was a short, open, steep bushwhack down to the trail, which I walked out.
