“A loop with variable terrain, lot of good ups and downs, and some beautiful views.”— Ronit Malka
A little under 0.5 miles in, there will be a junction between the Appalachian Trail and Stony Man Summit Trail - take a right onto the AT, following the white blazes. The trail will start to go downhill from here (most of this segment of the run is downhill with some uphill chunks), and will gradually become rockier.
The junction between the AT and Passamaquoddy Trail - North will come after a nice viewpoint from a rocky outcropping and a couple of sharp switchbacks. Turn onto Passamaquoddy Trail - North (yellow blazes) and follow this about a mile over mostly rocky up and down terrain.
Once arriving at a very wide junction between Passamaquoddy Trail - North, Passamaquoddy Trail - South, and Furnace Spring Horse Trail, take a left onto Furnace Spring Horse Trail (note: taking a right onto Passamaquoddy Trail - South will just take you to the road and eventually to Skyland Resort). Follow this trail uphill to the parking lot; the rockiness subsides a lot here, making for an easy finish for your run.
