Short Mountain lies directly south of Ragged Mountain on the southern side of Carey St/Reservoir Road. This small 'mountain' hosts a few cliffs, the most popular of which is the Winter Wall. The Winter Wall hosts some of the highest quality traprock cliffs in the state and was once off limits to climbers. The Town of Berlin now owns Winter Wall and climbing here is once again legal.

Getting There 

The best approach to short mountain is to park at the Timberlin Park lot and follow Marjorie Moore Road to the dead end. From here one can access the Short Mountain area and its array of cliffs.
