“A moderate trail that passes by one of the Greylock plane crashes.”— David Smith
Somewhere along this stretch, the trail passes by a fruiting American Chestnut tree. The trail turns right off the old road and ascends a series of switchbacks. You'll pass by a piece of the plane wreckage (on the left). A bit farther, you'll pass by the main bulk of the crash.
I've heard conflicting information about this plane crash and haven't fully researched it. It crashed somewhere between 1960 - 1999; the pilot survived, but his passengers didn't make it. This isn't a full listing, but it's a start. The trail ends when it reaches the AT.
Fauna: White Tail Deer.
Historical Features: plane crash.
