Pachaug, Hell Hollow, South

★★★½  3.84 miles interesting loop down the pachaug trail to philips pond, then back up trail 1 road. 50:50, hikey:walkey, moderate climby in a few places. hiked with a friend and found a geocache (looked like a geocache-genius when, after fruitlessly wandering through the underbrush, just said, “heck, if i was hiding a cache, i’d […]

[…]
