Another great mix of sweeping rolling trail under the canopy of a red pine plantation.

Description

South Side Loop is another excellent rolling trail, this time on a gentle hillside under good sized red pines. It starts at the base of the ridge along a broad wooded swamp, follows the swamp, turns up the ridge, along through the pines, back down to in a small ravine to the swamp, then a climbing turn to the top again.

The final section leaves the pines to stay atop in hardwoods, passing the Well of Soles, an abandoned hand dug and stone lined well, before popping out on the ski trail where you can catch Farmer's Well Trail.
