Are you asking about the roads through the MRRA? (Moose River Recreation Area) You won't be driving through there until late spring. Those are snowmobile roads in the winter.

You can drive south from outside of Indian Lake (at the big bend in the road by the golf course) to get to the eastern entrance of MRRA.

Depending on where you want to hike to, and how far, you can get into the WCLW from the NPT Trailhead in Piseco.

Its difficult to get in there because all the roads on the periphery are seasonal. The Haskell Rd trailhead in Piesco would probably be the best way. You could also park at Mason Lake but would have to ski/hike Perkins Clearing Rd. all the while looking over your shoulder for approaching snowmobilers. There is a parking lot on Cedar River road but in the winter you have to pay per day($10 I think).

I used to snowmobile through the Moose River Plains and They get a lot of snow in there. It seems to be in a "snow belt". Breaking trail would be a chore. I would love to see Cedar and West Lake in the winter. Has anyone here ever been in there in the winter?

Could you snowmobile to the trailhead at Pillsbury mountain and hike from there? (I just found a reason to get a snowmobile)
