Park at the Farm Pond lot and walk down the street to the trail head that is obvious. Walk due north for the quickest route to the summit of Mt. Misery or meander around some. There is a nice loop to the south and another one to the north. The Town Forest property and trails continue to the north, across Farm Road, up towards Pine Hill. Some trails are part of the Bay Circuit Trail system.

Perfect day to trail-run Mt. Misery as the tropical depression Jose was in town, blowing things about. This was my first time in this forest which is right across the street from Farm Pond. It's a nice little property, some signs of boy scout activities and camping in there. The town cell tower, disguised as a giant tree, is in there too. The cell coverage is great! Misery is a nice little ledge with a cute little erratic placed right in the middle of it (looks like humans, not glaciers, put it there but you never know!). Went all the way up to Farm Road spooking a dough deer. A nice property for sure!
