“This trail runs along old woods roads and dirt roads through a historical town.”— David Smith
It follows the edge of the woods, then turns right uphill. It fuses with Secondary 112 (BRSC) and continues to the top of the hill. Secondary 112 (BRSC) turns left and Mary Lyon Trail continues straight.
It climbs over the ridge, then descends down to Barnes Branch Road. Turn left (past the pond) and continue down the road. When you reach the intersection with Barnes Road, continue straight.
The trail travels for a while, then takes a sharp back left into the woods. This section of the trail is very poorly maintained and it may be more prudent to follow the roads. If you choose to follow the woods path, try not to get clothes-lined by saplines running across the trail. Descend along Phillips Road to Baptist Corner Road and continue east.
Turn right onto North Bear River Road, signed as Bear River Road. Follow the dead-end road past where the pavement ends. In a short distance, the trail turns left into the woods. After descending the hill, the trail fuses with a snowmobile trail that goes out to the powerlines.
Here, the trails split slightly, then coincide over the bridge. The trail follows the edge of a ridge, then descends to Beldingville Road.
Fauna: Bluejay, Robin, Barred Owl, Grey Squirrel, Chickadee.
