A very nice morning in the woods of the Southern Adirondacks with great company. Very easy hiking on a cool, but pleasant day. A little over 4 miles total RT.

Ben Wood Mountain & Spruce Mountain(Adirondacks)
Met up with a small group of hikers in Warrensburg to hike a couple of small peaks in the Pack Demonstration Forest. The Pack Forest is found along Old Route 9, which is located off of Route 9 just north of its intersection with Route 28. The group consisted of 5 other hikers(Jim, Spencer, Melissa, John and Jarod) some familiar, some unfamiliar. We parked on the shoulder of the gravel road in the Pack Forest across from a gate blocking a logging road. Just a few feet from the car was beautiful, babbling Catarack Brook.
