Description

This trail follows blue blazes. It branches off the RRR Brooks Trail, shortly after crossing over the brook. It climbs a little hill then turns onto an old road grade. It passes by the Smith Trail (on the right). The Smith Trail leads to a nice little overlook with views of the Williamstown college area. It passes both spurs of the Hunter Family Loop (on the right).

It then enters into an open field and passes by a spur of the Bob's Ski Loop. It enters another patch of trees, then comes out to an open hill (at Bob's Loop Alternate). It turns left (uphill), following the edge of the field. At the top of the hill, the trail turns right and descends to the treeline. It follows an old access road out to the Taconic Trail.

Along this road, the RRR Brooks Trail enters from the left and coincides with the Sara Tenney Trail to the gate. While there isn't a defined route to the other half of the trail, follow the Taconic Trail left and cross the road at the end of the guard rail. Across the road, there is a dark blue-blazed trail to the left; this isn't the Sara Tenney Trail. The Sara Tenney Trail turns right, following an old road grade. It passes by two spurs of an alternate to the trail.

It passes by the Turnpike Trail (on the left), which leads to Berlin Road. It continues its ascension up to the Petersburg Pass. To loop back, you can follow the Taconic Crest Trail north, take the Shepherd Well Trail, then take the RRR Brooks Trail back to Sara Tenney Trail.
