Description

This trail branches (left) off Felton Pond Connector, near Felton Pond. It follows an old road up to another junction with Felton Pond Connector and turns left (uphill). Here, the trail switchbacks up the ridgeline until it reaches the peaks. It travels moderately between the peaks, then descends to the Switchback Connector (on the right). It continues to descend an eroded road with loose rocks. It ends at the top of the Schermerhorn Trail. *Taking the Schermerhorn Trail will bring you back to Felton Pond, or you can tap out on the Switchback Access Spur.
