Description

Generally following the historic stonewalls used to delineate farmland, Blue Trail heads north/south, connecting many of Hemlock Hills east/west trails. Starting from Orange Access Trail - West, Blue Trail heads straight up the fall line of the Hemlock Hills high point. From here the trail is easy, save a few roots and rocks, as it trends downhill, crosses Miry Brook, then intersects White Trail - Campground.
