Description

The trail heads east from the trailhead on White Oaks Road. After passing the south side of the North Adams waterworks, it follows an old woods road east and north. The trail parallels Broad Brook, crossing it several times, before reaching the Agawan Trail junction at 1.6 miles. These crossings can be challenging in the spring or at other times of high water. The trail then ascends northeasterly to a dirt road at 3.7 miles, on which it travels for the last 0.3 miles of its length east to the intersection with the Long Trail.

Lots of wide brook crossings, over large boulders. Recommend doing this when waters are not high. Watch for rerouted trails because they may get rerouted after severe storms as the trail runs along water in several areas.
