DescriptionSome of the best long routes in Bolton. Most routes require a few pieces of gear or a bold head to be lead save for a few all-sport exceptions.
Trail leads between parcels of private land. Details
Follow the yellow bottle caps and pink flagging to ensure you remain on Crag-VT or Green Crow Logging property and not on private land.
Getting There (Updated Spring 2016)I recommend bringing a local if it's your first time or following the instruction in the guidebook Tough Schist. This will prevent accidentally ending up on private land.
Hiking time is about 25 minutes for a good hiker knowing the trail:
-Otherwise here is the lengthy but detailed directions as per the 2015 Fall trail day trail that was finalized.
-Begin from the quarry and head past the kiosk toward the upper quarry.
-Continue right around the shoulder of the quarry and take the second left fork with a small yellow sign that says "82/Carcass".
-Continue up steep hiking for 3 or 4 minutes until you are at the top of the quarry at a T- intersection. Turn right for Carcass, left for 82.
-Continue up steeply following yellow trail markers until you reach a flatter logging road with small boulders at the intersection.
-Turn right and continue for 400 feet.
-When you spot the bright orange posted signs, look for an obvious trail on your left marked with pink flagging.
-Continue up this steep trail past a few water trenches until it splits left or right.
-The left passage is blocked by branches, go right for 30 or so feet until the trail is blocked by branches again and a small trail can be found splitting off to the left. If you somehow get to the big downed birch, you went too far.
-Continue up one final hill until the trail evens out and starts clearing into very pretty berry bushes.
-Continue for 5 or so minutes until you hit another logging road. From here the top of the October Wall can already be seen.
-Continue downhill (right) for about 500 feet until you reach a cairn and a trail marked with pink flagging on your left.
-Follow this down and to the base of the cliff where it hits the cliff under the route "Block Party".
