Description

If you drove up White Oaks Road and ended up at Mountain Meadow Preserve, you've gone too far. This trail starts from the parking area with the blank kiosk. It follows red blazes through an open field and into the woods. It mostly ascends via an old woods road. It turns left, at an arrow, to ascend the ridgeline. It passes over another road, then gets slightly steeper. As you approach the spruce and hemlock forest, the trail passes over a small hump (that isn't the summit). The trail ends at a rock cone, just past the elevation sign. Note that the elevation sign is incorrect, and the rock cone is not the highest point. It is about10 feet higher in a flattish wooded area 1/4 mile north.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Sheep Laurel, Eastern Hemlock, Beech, Red Spruce, Wintergreen, Beechdrops, Hobblebush, Paper Birch, Gooseberry/Currant.
