Description

This section of the NET runs from Pelham to Cooleyville. It starts from a hard to find little parking area east of Shutesbury Road. It travels moderately northward, then passes by double stone pillars (on the right). When the trail gets closest to Daniel Shays Highway, it turns left (at an access road) at the yellow gate. It passes a few more cellarholes, along the way before it comes out onto Town Farm Road. It follows this road, then turns left onto Prescott Road. It crosses over and descends the gravel Cooleyville Road. Section 12 of the NET ends on Cooleyville Road, by a swamp and washed out area.
