“A hike through the valley, in the shadow of the falls.”— David Smith
It crosses across the field towards the stream. Here, there is a small spur (on the right) that leads to a spring. At the spring, you can hear it gurgling beneath the rocks. It crosses over a bridge to the north side of Money Brook. It reaches a point where the trail was re-located (left) up the hill away from the old road grade. It descends back to the road grade and follows along the Money Brook. There are a few more brook crossings that can be difficult during the winter.
The trail rises over a steep little rocky section to the junction with the Mount Prospect Trail. The trail travels a narrow singletrack, paralleling high above the brook. The trail reaches a part where it turns right and descends a jumbled mess of stone stairs down over a brook. The trail ascends to a sharp turn, where a spur trail to the falls branches off to the forward right. The trail climbs some stone stairs, then follows a narrow path on the edge of the mountain. It takes a switchback and ascends the ridgeline. It travels moderately to the sidetrail to the Wilbur Clearing Lean-To. The trail travels moderately to its end at the Appalachian Trail.
