The Blitzer Easement Loop climbs from an elevation of about 1250 ft. along Rowe Mountain Road, to an elevation of 1732 ft. along the Knights Hill ridge. The loop consists of a West Side Trail and an East Side trail and can be hiked in either direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise). The slopes at the lower elevations are moderate, but some are quite step at the upper elevation. Mostly, the trails wander through a beautiful pine-hemlock-oak-spruce forest. At the upper end, Knights Hill Trail is used for about 1/4 mile as a connector between the West Side and East Side trails. There are several excellent viewpoints (facing northerly) along the Knights Hill trail portion. On a clear day, the White Mountains are easily visible. The loop has excellent signage to guide you along the way.
