Description

This is a steep spur off of White Trail that leads up to Castle Craig. Despite its name and the way it is marked on most maps, it is blazed pink instead of white. It is steep and rocky, but not overly technical. Be careful as there are many loose rocks scattered along this trail

This trail splits off of White Trail and begins to ascend steeply. It climbs the enscarpment until meeting up with the Metacomet Trail. After which it turns to the left and leads to the road, parking lot, and tower.
