Great maps! It would be very helpful to include include better coverage of roads leading to trail heads in Westmore. For example, the Long Pond Road leads to the trail heads for both Haystack and Bald Hill Mts. Hinton Hill Road will get one to the Telegraph trail to Bald Hill Mt. Both of these roads connect to Highways on the east side of the mountains as well as from the Willoughby Lake side. The CCC roads in the Willoughby Forest should also be included. All the roads mentioned show up well on the USGS topo maps. Looking forward to summer on the trails. Art Brooks, President, Westmore Association.
