Trail shared by Tom Robson

Follow historic stonewalls and think about what farming was like on this rocky landscape.

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.
