|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Small area suitable for a few vehicles. DO NOT block the other roads. |
||Dry Trail |

||One or two easy ones. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Good signs, thanks. Blazed, easy to follow. |
||Keep in mind some of this passes through private property, so please be careful not to let your dog go where they should not go. Watch ledges, bring water, and (since some of this is grassy) check for ticks. |
||A few mosquitos. |
|Lost and Found:
||Beautiful woods and open spaces, a very small cemetery (on the left), near some houses (we did this clockwise this time), and a cellar hole. A couple years ago, we did counterclockwise and couldn't find the trail after making the turn after the Johnson Cellar hole. So easy doing clockwise. We needed the portion of the Mine Trail that joins to the Mine Loop (which we had done last time). That trail was relatively flat and a very pretty woods walk. Lord Hill had good views of Horseshoe Pond and surrounding areas.|
Trail steeply descends on its way to Pine Hill and then ascends it. No clear views from the summit of Pine Hill, but so many ripe blueberries! The real views were from the ledges, it would be a great place to watch the sunset (remember your headlamps). We were not there quite that late, but the evening sky was gorgeous. We descended and I felt foolish, seeing how close we were the last time.
Nice footbed on this trail.
