Trail Description

This trail was developed in the summer of 2016. The trail starts at a chain link fence and goes into the woods on the right. It follows an old road parallel to Bell Settlement Road then turns left away from the road. It travels through a mature fir forest where the roots of the trees are laid bare.

A large rope is used to help descend a small hill. The trail then comes to a junction. Turning left will take you along another old road that travels through a mature red pine forest. The trail then turns to the right. It soon comes to a small clearing at the top of a hill overlooking the Meduxnekeag River valley.

The trail travels along the cliff tops for a short distance before going back into the woods to go around some large sink holes. The trail then returns to travel along the cliff tops once again. The trail then turns back into the woods and soon meets up with the junction.
