Description

This section starts from the parking area on Gulf Road, near the Bald Hills trails. It travels just below the Bald Hills, then turns northward. It turns and runs eastward, until it comes to parallel Northfield Road. It crosses Northfield Road, then begins its ascent up to Little Mount Grace. There is an alternate that provides an easier route than going over the summit. It climbs to the tower atop Mount Grace. Here, you can get some excellent views from the tower. It descends down to Winchester Road, where it ends. The trail ties into Section 18, the second to last section.
