Description

This trail starts from Snowmobile Junction FL02 and steeply descends a hill. It reaches the junction with LFR and turns right. It winds its way through the woods to eventually arrive across from the Florida Fire Department. It skirts around the west side of the Fire Department and re-enters the woods. Here, the trail passes by many marshes and wetlands, where there may be a chance to spot some wildlife.

The trail reaches Snowmobile Junction FL05, where Chilson's Pass (FL MTNS) leaves on the left. In a short distance, the trail passes over Blackstone Road and re-enters the woods. Shortly after passing one of the stone walls, there will be red paint on the trees to signify that you've entered Florida State Forest. Here, just below the peak of Blackpoll Mountain, there are many shallow caves concealed by walls of icicles. The trail passes by a small lookout spur (on the right), with good views of upper Massachusetts and Vermont.

At Bliss Road, the trail follows it to the right, then turns off the road into the woods. It travels through an open field, then crosses over Tilda Hill Road. Here, the trail travels south, just below the windmill ridgeline. The trail ends at an un-numbered junction (possible FL04), at Chilson's Pass (FL MTNS).
