“Rocky singletrack with even more singletrack miles within the loop perimeter.”— Kevin Ketchman
Hiking counterclockwise, the trail does a long, sweeping loop over rocky terrain. The trail eventually arrives at an intersection, merging almost without notice, with 31-25 Connector and 24-31 Connector (Switchback Trail). Strawberry Hill Trail offers the only connection to Noanet Woodlands Reservation, which offers an additional ~10 miles of trail.
It is very possible to meander off the Strawberry Hill Trail because the yellow blazes are not present in this section (a common problem in Hale Reservation). Keep a lookout for intersection "24" at a 4-way intersection; turn left. You'll re-enter the woods and see a trail (Strawberry Hill Alternate Trail) on the left that winds up behind a large rock which is immediately off the trail; these are indicators that you are on the correct trail.
From here, the trail connects with a fire road and makes it way back to intersection "6". Note that hikers will pass intersections "8" and "9" before finishing the lollipop loop.
