A lush alternative to Monadnock bouldering. Real soil underfoot. Streams and seasonal pools. And Eskers, those rare geological remnants from the end of the glacial period, whose serpentine ridges afford hikers a canopy tour of the forest below. Note that dogs and horses are not allowed. 4 miles of trail not enough? Easily double your hike with the connecting trail to The Heald Tract.

The original trail head on the map was wrong, after locating it online I gave it a second try. It's a nice wooded walk with clear and easy to follow trail markers. It's a well maintained easy trail with a few moderate sections. Maps are available at the trail head.

I was unable to get to the trail head, Fisk Hill Rd. is posted as private driveway about a 1/4 mile in.
