“A connecting trail between Ossipee and Tuftonboro.”— David Smith
Here the trail climbs through a grove of White Birch trees, descends to Chickville Road, crosses the road, and stays right to re-enter the woods. When you see the house straight ahead, the trail veers right, passes some rundown campers, and skirts around the property via a dirt road. After skirting around the property, the trail connects with Brownell Road and veers right. The road passes some more campers then re-enters the woods.
When the trail comes out into the open under some powerlines, follow them to the right. The trail dips down to a road and follows it to the right. From here, the trail gets pretty remote so check to make sure your phone has service, in the event something goes wrong. The trail comes out to the powerlines again and follows them to the right.
As the trail descends to Melvin Pond, it becomes a bit marshy; the bugs are probably terrible in the summertime. The trail crosses Canaan Road and descends steeply after crossing the road, then comes out into the open and follows the signs out to another set of powerlines. The trail follows beneath the powerlines, for a short distance, to Mountain Road/ Route 171. It crosses the road and ends at the junction, just past the WSC Snack Shack.
Fauna: Robin, Hairy Woodpecker, Blue Jay, Coyote (scat), Turkey (tracks), Grouse, Moose (tracks), rabbit (fur), Nuthatch, Chickadee, Deer (tracks).
