Pachaug, Hell Hollow, North Loop

★★★★½  3.5 miles

excellent hike for the most part anyway. very hikey, probably 85:15 hikey:walkey. climby not too bad. there is a lot of atv activity on both flat rock road and the quinnebaug trail, so it’s pretty eroded and rocky. not the best walking surface. but i still enjoyed the hike very much. flat rock road is really interesting, in that it appears to actually be built along the flattish top of a long granite outcropping. there was a decent view from one overlook point, which probably won’t be as nice in the summer when the leaves are all on the trees.
