This section is pretty straightforward climbing up to a ridge, crossing an old woods road with an impressive rock formation, and a steep climb up what must be Turkey Hill.
The trail then passes through mountain laurel and marsh to descend a steep wooden stairway to Boston Hollow Rd. Into the steps has been carved “By now you are visiting a place that you see all too infrequently yet it is a major part of who you are”.
