Ascent Trip Report

On the way down from Misery Mtn - South Peak, met really, scaring a "black bear" just below the summit and day's only sunny rest stop (3:30PM). I expected drizzle all the way to summit having missed the Bentley Hollow's left turn right at my start (the trail, an old road, follows up along the creek bank) so found myself bushwacking some from tote roads' end, even to following a MA State Forest Boundary Ridge Line reaching to Taconic Crest Trail (TCT), and got back to a "you are parked on private property - next time please ask permission" on my windshield. Rte 43 parking for this trail seems quite hidden away?
