“Panoramic views are worth the somewhat strenuous trek.”— Betty Anne Fequet
Stop frequently and look around. The view through the birch trees is amazing. D6 is steep but is nothing compared to the climb yet to come on E3. The summit was previously burnt and can be wind swept, but the views are spectacular. In areas without substantial trees look for flagging tape along the way as all traces of a tracked trail are often obliterated by the wind.
Enjoy descending the knoll but before E3 crosses Chaulk's Connector ski trail, watch for a sign indicating a shortcut back to D6. The shortcut trail is quite narrow but is not difficult. Follow D6 down, across Games Trail and onto D1 briefly before turning onto C5. Follow C5 across Dogberry Lane and branch onto C6, a pleasant trail through a birch grove. C6 ends at Games Trail. Cut across and find E1 which leads all the way back to the old log cabin.
