“This section of the NET/M&M is almost entirely road-walking.”— David Smith
The trail turns left when you reach the parking area for Scarborough Brook Conservation Area. This is a nice little area to relax for a few and take in the sights. There's plenty of wildlife-viewing opportunities at the pond here. If you're lucky enough, you might be able to pick a handful of cranberries before you get back on the trail.
The trail ascends slightly, travels along the edge of a property, then arrives at Packardville Road. While the website shows this portion of the trail ending atop Mount Lincoln, the sign is here at Packardville Road. The sign for New England Trail/Metacomet-Monadnock Trail: MA Section 11 would create an overlap, so I've ended it here.
Fungi: Tinder Polypore, Birch Polypore, Parchment Fungi.
Fauna: Geese, Beaver (dam), Kingfisher, Woolly Bear, Bluebird, Titmouse.
