Description

The Wintershine Trail (Orange) goes along the mountain ridge. At the trailhead, the trail is wide. At 0.15 miles, there is an overgrown viewpoint. You can hear the whispering Black River below. From here, the trail gets narrow. At 0.26 miles, you'll come to a nonfunctional old stone water fountain. Now the trail gets steep and rocky. At 0.36 miles, you cross the bridge over Trout Brook before the trail ends on Haki Trail (Light Blue).
