North-South Trail Trek - Section #6

In May I hiked the last section of the North-South Trail (NST) from George Washington Wildlife Management Area to the northern terminus in Buck Hill Wildlife Management Area on the Rhode Island/Massachusetts border. From there I hiked another two miles on the Mid-State Trail to Wallum Lake in Douglas State Forest where my car was parked. It was an unseasonably warm and humid day and the lack of water and the constant ups and downs in Buck Hill began to wear me down. This was perhaps the best 13 miles of trail on the entire NST. Most of the miles were on single-track trail with only 1.5 miles on a gravel forest road in Buck Hill WMA.

The rocky journey begins.

Striated and split rock.

Some company on the trail.

Barefoot hiking not recommended!

It doesn't show well in the photo but these stones were bleached white.

I saw many of these stone cellars on the Mid-State Trail in Douglas State Forest.
