Description

This trail isn't clearly signed from the north end, but it starts from Hawley Road and descends southbound. It travels along a small path through the woods, then skirts along the edge of the forest. In a short distance, it reaches Lookout Trail and coincides with it for a ways. Eventually, Lookout Trail leaves to the left and North - South Trail continues straight. It travels through a forest of hemlocks and pines, which later turns to hardwoods. The trail runs until it reaches Bear Swamp Road, where it ends.
