“This section of the SRK G coincides with the entire length of the Kearsarge Valley Trail.”— David Smith
It turns left onto Shaker Street, then right onto Gile Pond Road. It passes beneath Interstate 89, then turns right onto Gile Road. It turns off Gile Road and runs through a small stretch of Shadow Hill State Forest. It crosses Gile Pond Road, from a parking area, and runs up towards Kearsarge Regional Middle School. It travels along the edge of the field and through small patches of trees.
The trail turns right at Wadleigh Road. When you reach the junction with Music Hill Road, the trail turns left into the woods. The trail is wet and rocky through this stretch. It runs along the edge of a wetland, where you can often catch a glimpse of some wildlife. Follow Wadleigh Hill Road to the right, until the trail turns left through the stone pillars. The trail runs along a woods road until it reaches Penacook Road. Section 12 ends here; turn left to continue onto section 13.
Fauna: Red-Winged Blackbirds.
