Description

This starts by branching off the junction with Glade and Upper Slippery Rock. It climbs southwest, then climbs steeply northward. The trail reaches an unsigned junction where you can turn left or continue straight. Taking the trail left will lead you directly up to Balanced Rock.

The trail follows an old road grade from here. It passes by Ferncliffe (on the right), which may be a closed trail (it's still signed, but the trail is rough). It passes by Stonehenge, a circular trail that passes by the concrete bases of an old structure. It continues up the road past Kennedy Park Mountain Bike 5 (on the left). The trail continues until its end at T.F. Coakley Main.
