Description

The northern portion of the trail is mostly singletrack climbing to the top of Soapstone Mountain. Here a lookout tower can provide views reaching into MA and NH. The trail descends only to climb several more peaks. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the trail dramatically mixing forest and boulders with several steep cutaways as you climb the hills. The trail eventually emerges and ends along a dirt road (Greaves) in Stafford, CT.
