14th rd, Minerva drive-able right now?

Was interested in hiking Moxham mountain this weekend. Any problems driving to the trail head?

It's Moxham Mt., and the report was that it was plowed to the trailhead this past winter. In any event, it's a solid town road to within 1/2 mile of the trailhead.

You should have no problem getting to the TH. You'd better check the parking spaces before pulling in as it may still be soft.

And if you have not been there, it's sometimes a little hard to find the actual trail once you park. If there is a residual plow pile, it's often piled up in front of the trail; the trail sign appears to direct you to a forest road which is NOT the trail; and trail markers are missing from the first 200 feet or so of the trail. So scout around for a minute; the trail starts a few feet to the right (west) of the parking spot; it's a foot path, not a forest road, and the first marker is a couple hundred feet in, and turned sideways so you don't see it at first.
