Description

One loop of many, this loop hits several forest landmarks: smallpox burial site, tipling rock, Nobscot ridge, old fire lookout towers.

A good maintenance loop when time is short, has fairly smooth hard sand/dirt trails except for the ascent/descent portions where it is rocky.

Old Jethro, also known as Tantamous, was a Native American medicine man who lived on Nobscot for a portion of his life. "A large stone-heap on this hill (tipling rock), which it is thought may have been Jethro's lookout, is mentioned in the records as early as 1654" - Annals of Sudbury, 1891
