Ross's Cliff Trail features a nice loop around Old Furnace State Park. The highlight is the view from the top of Half Hill. It then continues down towards Ross Pond and continues beneath Ross's cliff in a very rocky section of trail.

We began the hike from Old Furnace State Park Parking area near Route 6. Using a map downloaded from DEEP, we began our hike. As other's have noted, there are a number of unmarked trails so you have to pay real close attention to the blazes . The view from the cliff is pretty this time of year (April). The hike itself is an easy one, family and dog friendly. Great starter hike for the hiking season.

Started the hike by going straight to the cliff, came back down and completed the loop. Hiked to the cliff again and came back down and hiked around the pond and down through Ross Pond Marsh and back.Some light snowflakes falling on this chilly late March Sunday. Trees here are developing buds for spring. Total distance is roughly 4.5 miles for everything. I chose not to go down the far side of the cliff due to unclear trail markings. All other trails marked well. One of my all time favorites!

Great trail! It wasn’t marked well past the cliff, but very nice otherwise.

It is very easy to get lost in here. The map on AllTrails is NOT accurate at all. There are blue and yellow blazed trails that are crisscrossing numerous smaller trails. We had a fun adventure but be advised this is not an easy trail system.
