Trail shared by Annie Gorin

A quick loop or you can add the Upper Loop to extend the trail with some steep incline and narrow switchbacks.

Need to Know

Pay attention to white blazes. They are not obvious at times. The trail is very narrow and can be slippery on the ledge. The Upper Loop follows Slate Valley Trail diamond markers. Parking is not ideal. The trailhead is on Thrall Rd. in Poultney.

Description

Shaded under a canopy of green, the climb starts right away. Some markers are hard to find. Footing can be tricky with roots, rocks, and downed trees. The trail is very pretty and quiet.

Flora & Fauna

Tons of chipmunks. Some chest-high raspberry bushes. Ferns and huge pine.
