Description

This trail starts from Kelsey Notch at an easy to miss turn (look for the CT South sign). It branches off Kelsey Notch Road/ NH Primary 110 and heads south through a heavily de-forested area. It follows an old road, then turns right onto a singletrack. Here, the trail pushes through tall ferns, along the edge of the de-nuded forest. It makes its ascent up towards Baldhead Mountain through a rocky area. Shortly, before reaching Baldhead Shelter, the summit will be just to the left. The trail ends when it reaches Gadwah Notch Trail, near Baldhead Shelter.
