Beautiful trail with gentle climb to West Stockbridge. Watch for bears if you continue north to quarry. Marked private on parts but not enforced. Owners friendly.

Great biking and hiking trail with beautiful vegetation and surroundings. Even an old abandoned car like Into the Wild.

Nice and easy trail for all. Good out and back.

If you follow the directions from Google Maps, you will get to the trail, but no place to park. Found out that if go down Oak St from Main, you will find Saint Bridget's Cemetery on the right. Enter and go all the way to the back of the cemetery. You can park there and trail is only feet away. From there, head North as the trail ends shortly to the south. Enjoy.
