Sorry, yeah, heading north up along The Branch. The old logging road follows the stream pretty closely for a mile or so. Once it veers away from the stream for good it's not really worth continuing on (if you did it dead ends at a gate on the property line with the Elk Lake parcel).

At some point IIRC, a network of mountain bike trails is planned for this area but at present there's basically just the old logging road only.

Although the hike south into the Hoffman Notch Wilderness is nice also. It crosses Sand Pond Brook, passes through some bottomlands ecosystem, then starts up along Hoffman Notch Brook. And you'd find solitude there for sure- hardly anyone ever hikes the Hoffman Notch Trail.
