Description

This trail starts off Fred Mason Road, just above Bassett Reservoir. It passes in-between a narrow corridor through the guard rails and passes the 1934 Bassett Brook Dam. It travels moderately, then turns right. Here, at the turn, there is a small bypass (on the left) that leads to a small cascade.

The trail climbs a steep little section to the main tread of Reservoir Road. It turns left, then ascends past AD08 and AD09. It stays left of the main road and ties into the Cheshire Harbor Trail. Here, Corridor 9 follows the Cheshire Harbor Trail (left). The trail (as Reservoir Road Trail), ends here at the Cheshire Harbor Trail.

Corridor 9 provides a connecting route between Savoy State Forest, Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, and the Mount Greylock trails.
