Need to Know

This trail is blazed with two different types of red/yellow trail blazes. It is inconsistently blazed and there are multiple other official trails and social trails in this area so be careful to stay on the trail.

Description

This trail is blazed red/yellow and begins the railroad bridge behind Rocky Neck's main pavilion. It heads eastward and climbs up a rocky face underneath a small powerline corridor.

Not only does this part of the trail have nice rocky outcroppings, but it also immediately provides views of the Long Island Sound to the south. The rest trail turns north and continues through some rock formations, however, there are no more notable views. It passes a junction with Red/White Trail and ends at a junction with Blue/White Trail.
