Description

The trail starts at the Oliverian Brook Trail and follows an old logging road until it crosses the West Branch of the Oliverian Brook. The brook is not deep at the crossing, but it is not bridged and requires stepping on small, often submerged stones. After the crossing, the trail steepens and eventually joins the Square Ledge Trail. The trail is not difficult, but it is a long steady climb.
