“A spring trail race on the Wapack Trail.”— Jesse Veinotte
After a road crossing, the trail skirts around the outside of the Windblown XC area and makes its way up Barrett Peak on a tough singletrack climb. Once at the top of Barrett, there are many small ups and downs over the summits of the New Ipswich Mountains with their open ridge scrambling across slab rock. There is a steep downhill leading down to Binney Pond and the trail travels around the perimeter before joining up with a fire road. This road gradually climbs the backside of Mt. Watatic.
After approaching near the summit of Mt. Watatic, the descent is steep and rocky to the parking area on Rt. 119.
