Description

While it's unclear if this trail was created to replace the Old Turner Trail, this is the more sustainable of the two. It starts off the west spur of Berry Pond Circuit Road and ascends via switchbacks to Old Turner Trail. It crosses over it and ascends over multiple switchbacks. As you near the top of the ridge, the trail coincides with Old Turner Trail to the Taconic Skyline Trail.

The DCR's map shows this trail ending at the Taconic Skyline Trail, but the sign (on location) shows that it continues a bit further. From here, the maintenance is very poor and it's more of a bushwhack along an old road grade. It passes by a see-saw (on the left) and appears to end off the east end of Berry Pond. There isn't any clear definition of where this trail actually ends.
