Gorgeous views! If you hear gun shots, don't be alarmed, apparently the police shooting range is near the trail and you can see it from the top!

Beware of salamanders! And ten thousand slippery rocks! Deer, wild turkeys and salamanders. Some nice scenic vistas...some powerlines and a shooting range below. would like to have connected with the mattabassett that's by black pond...too busy with traffic at crossing 66

A nice patch of woods in a semi-industrial area. See my full write up which includes directions and other things to look out for.
