Description

This section of the NET/M&M starts off the parking area at Harris Mountain Road/ Harris Street. It runs easterly, following a portion of the Robert Frost Trail. It runs underneath some powerlines and over a small hill. Please use caution when descending to Bay Road and use the ropes that are provided.

Follow Bay Road (to the right) for a short distance. Turn into the woods when you see the sign for the Kestrel Conservation Area. It climbs up to the top of another hill, then descends to Federal Street. This section ends here, but you can pick up the next section (New England Trail/Metacomet-Monadnock Trail: MA Section 10) by following Federal Street to the left.
