Overview

The start of this 6.0 mi. section of the Mohawk Tr., passes through wet farmland shortly reaching a bridge crossing Furnace Brook. It then ascends for about a mile, steeply at first on rocky terrain becoming moderate then gradual as it reaches the summit of northern ridge of Coltsfoot Mt. The hiking becomes easier as the trail continues south to Echo Rock (view/lunch), on to what once was farmland w/stone walls, descending into Dark Entry Forest and following the brook w/small waterfalls & site of an old dam to the Southern trailhead (no parking allowed). There is a descending 0.6 mi. road walk to Rte. 7. Car spot required. Rain/sleet/snowstorm cancels. Bring: water, snacks, lunch, optional hiking poles & micro spikes. Meet: 9:30 for prompt 9:40 carpool to starting trailhead. For info regarding where to meet, please register w/Leader Jill Oneglia, jaoneglia@icloud.com, 860-309-4244
