Description

This portion of Corridor 8 starts from Snowmobile Junction SV01, off Bates Road, and heads north. At approximately 0.6 miles, there's a connector on the right that'll take you to Windsor State Forest. Though this junction is unsigned (on location), it's shown on the SledMass app as Snowmobile Junction SV02/ BS216.

It follows Savoy Hollow Road until it comes out on the other side of the hilltops. It turns right into an open field, goes through the woods, then follows the road again. It turns right into the woods again, crosses over a driveway, then parallels Griffin Hill Road. It does a few more weird little arcs through the woods and to the road, then crosses the road. It runs for three quarters of a mile, then comes out to Snowmobile Junction SV26.

It passes behind the church, then crosses Main Road to the opposite side. At Center Road, the trail turns right into the woods and travels to Snowmobile Junction SV22. Here, the trail coincides with Corridor 9 north to Tilton Road. At Tilton Road, Corridor 9 leaves right and Corridor 8 continues to follow Bannis Road. It turns left to follow Adams Road, then turns right following Lewis Hill Trail.

It turns left onto Tannery Road, then right when it reaches New State Road. Just after passing over the bridge, the trail turns to the right up to Burnett Road. It turns left through a bushwhack of goldenrod stalks to come out into a large parking area. It follows the Black Bear Trail and a portion of Sherman Road. It turns left to follow the Carpenter Trail and ends at Snowmobile Junction AD01. This is the northern terminus of Corridor 8.
