Hi,
I'm heading up to the Pittsburg area this week. Has anyone used the Magalloway Rd recently-, I'm hoping to hike up the mountain while I'm in the area. If it's in fad shape, I'll probably visit the 4th Connecticut Lake Mature Conservancy area instead. Was hoping to do both!

Thanks,

If you mean ski, snowshoe or snowmachine the Magalloway Road then perhaps there is enough snow left. If you mean to drive, I think you are 4 weeks too early.
