PCHC North-South Trail, Leg 4

8.4 miles; killingly, ct and foster, ri

another leg down! there was only about a mile and a half of this that was in the woods; the rest was all road walking. but they were very pretty, very scenic country roads for the most part, so it wasn’t too bad.

roadside shrine

border crossing

we started from pond road in killingly, connecticut, and traveled down a gravel road till we got to the border, here. the road became paved, and that was pretty much the rest of the trip, aside from one small section just before we got to route 6.

at one point we came across this puzzling note… what are we not to remove? the note? the string? the tree it’s attached to? a mystery…

you just never know what you’re going to see when you walk down a rural road. this car had a bird’s nest on the hood, and it didn’t look as though it had just fallen there; it looked like it was constructed there.

this pretty little pond was next to the trail where it went through the woods for a short stretch. we heard bullfrogs.

also on that section of trail, we saw a few mountain laurels, but they were past their peak bloom.

i have not added this hike to my hikefinder. you can find info on the north-south trail here.
