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.
