From the trailhead, the trail bears left off the logging road and ascends on an old woods road that forks at 0.75 miles. The New Boston Trail goes straight and climbs steadily to David Logan Shelter at 1.0 miles. Just above the shelter, the trail passes a piped spring on the left and then reaches the Long Trail at 1.2 miles.

Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
