“Gentle hike out to Blueberry Knoll - Great family hike!”— Ryan Gibbs
Family Friendly This trail stays below treeline, is relatively flat, and has great views!
At 0.4 mi from the beginning on the North Basin Trail you'll come to the Hamlin Ridge Trail jct. Stay straight along North Basin Trail and continue 0.3 mi before coming to the North Basin Cutoff on the right. Continue Straight again for 0.3mi and you'll arrive at Blueberry Knoll. The hike offers excellent views of North Basin and the massive Taber wall that flanks the Northern wall.
To return to Roaring Brook without returning to Chimmney Pond, simply take the North Basin Cutoff on the way back, when links up with the Chimmney Pond Trail further down.
