The Burnt Hill Trail is located on the southern end of the Forest, extending south from Picnic Area Road. It crosses shrub-lands and pastures, and offers many beautiful vistas along the way. It is a primitive trail with a natural tread. It has gravel in wet areas and is mowed through the fenced pastures. Please close gates behind you. The trail intersects the Interloken Trail and the Backbone Trail. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
