Runner Notes

Watch out for the steep spot, which is composed of slick schist. If I'm remembering this trail correctly, you'll have to hike through a stream for a short ways as well.

Description

This trail branches off Roaring Brook Trail at the carsonite that says to Switchback Trail. It climbs the ridge, then runs along the top. It travels moderately along the top, then descends to the Switchback Trail (on the left and right). This trail is part of the tread for the October Mountain Trail.
