A short trail that passes by remnants of an old lodge.

Description

This trail starts off the Wilbur's Clearing Trailhead and heads into a Red Spruce forest. It passes by a few connector trails and the spurs of the ski trail. It passes by the chimney and rises to it's end at the AT.

A short ski trail weaves back and forth over the Old Summit Road. When you reach the sign that says "easier to ski", take a right. At the top of Chimney Connector, there is a chimney stack. From what I was told, this chimney is the remnant of an old ski lodge that was burned down by an arsonist. Shortly after the chimney, the ski trail turns right off the OSR. It loops back around to the OSR and follows it to the AT.
