Description

From the White Rocks Picnic Area follow the blue-blazed trail to ascend to the Long Trail (0.4 miles). Turn right, south, off the Keewaydin Trail onto the Long Trail (LT) South. The LT climbs steeply, high above Bully Brook. The trail then ascends out of the mixed hardwood forest to cross a small stream. Turning sharply to the right and swinging around a spruce- and hemlock-covered promontory, the trail continues its steady climb to reach Greenwall Spur (0.6 miles). Do not take spur but continue on LT. The LT turns sharply and ascends gently to a junction on the right with the White Rocks Cliff Trail at a large stone cairn (0.9 miles). The trail descends from the LT to an outlook with dramatic views on the very brink of White Rocks Cliff (1.1 miles).

Other Information

The cliffs are a peregrine falcon nesting site, and may be closed to the public during nesting season.
