Description

This section of Sky Peak Trail starts off Beartown Mountain Road and runs northward to the pond, where Sky Peak Trail West leaves from on the left. The pond is a great place for birdwatching or quiet reflection. In a short ways, you'll pass by an old stone building (on the right). The trail turns left through a Hemlock and Spruce forest, then parallels East Brook. The trail turns right to ascend Sky Hill, then loops around to almost touch the Appalachian Trail. As you near the end of the trail, the path turns to crushed gravel. It ends when you reach Beartown Mountain Road.
