Description

While the map lists this trail as being open for summer use, it's more maintained for winter use. The trail can be accessed from the Fire Tower Trail or the Mass Audubon's High Ledges Wildlife Sanctuary. The trail's easy to navigate; just follow the snowmobile arrows.

From the fire tower, the trail follows the road along the ridge, passes by where the snowmobile trail leaves (on the right), crosses over a stone wall, and ends at a gravel road in the High Ledges Sanctuary.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Blueberries, Blackberries, Beaked Hazelnut, Strawberries, Sedges.
