Description

The trail starts off an obscure parking area along route 9. Cross Route 9 and follow it to the right. Take a left up Nye Road and follow it to the end. Nye Road ends and the M-S G continues on. The M-S G follows mixed woods roads and trails to the side trail to Crider Shelter. Crider Shelter is down the gravel road to the left; the trail then turns left off the road into a clearcut.

The trail follows Center Pond Road for a long while, and then veers left into the woods. This turn-off is easy to miss. Follow the driveway, stay right of the barn, and follow the obscure woods road into Andorra Forest. This is a nice little section with Robinson Brook Cascades in the middle.

The trail weaves through some confusing paths, then comes out into a blueberry scrubland. The trail follows this open area for a ways, then re-enters the woods on the north side.

This section of the trail ends at Route 123. To pick up Section 4, cross Route 123 past the parking area, and continue right on Pitcher Mountain Road.
