Description

The access road from the north is often muddy and deeply furrowed; it may be difficult to access the parking area on Hammertown Road. The trail descends along Hammertown Road north, then turns right at the sign for Clam River. It follows the Clam River along the western banks, then turns right to ascend the hill. It hits a few long switchbacks before arriving at the Clam River Trail. From here, the trail turns right and passes by a cellarhole. At Hammertown Road, the trail turns right to follow the road back to the parking area.

Flora: Eastern Hemlock, Wintergreen.
