Parking/Access Road Notes: The City of Concord maps for this area advise against parking along District 5 Road, but there is what appears to be a recently cleared pulloff opposite of where the CHCT continues north from the road. There is no signage here prohibiting parking. YMMV, but I had no issues. There is room here for two cars.

Comments
Comments: Some more new to me local trails. Pleasant woods walking on easy grades through pine forest then birch forest at the top of Pine Hill (793'). The actual high point is very hard to discern as the summit is long and very flat. Near the high point area is a rusted metal chair tucked in between two trees. I walked over to Carter Hill Orchard and back. The apples aren't ready just yet!

Trails were damp from the recent rain with just a few minor muddy areas. The first part of CHCT from District 5 Road passes through private property, so please respect the neighbors. :) The maps used for this area:
