Trail shared by David Smith

A short trail to the preserve's mini-peak.

Description

This trail branches off the Middle (XC) Trail and ascends to its junction with the XC Cut-Off (on the left). The trail continues through a boulder field and ascends and descends over some minor humps. The trail continues to climb to its junction with the Watkin's Way (XC) Trail (on left). A little ways past this junction, the trail reaches the summit of Bickford Heights (1,080 ft.) Here at the summit is the border of the Bolles Reserve and the Clark Reserve. From here, the trail descends the west side of the hill over steep rock. Watch your step when ice is present. The trail descends, following faded white dots or squares, to an old logging road. The trail is difficult to follow through here; pay close attention to the blazes. Shortly after the logging road, the trail passes through the outskirts of a very small pond. And, if you are able to navigate your way through this area, you should arrive at the trail's end at Old Mail (XC) Road.
