Section 6: Kendall Farm Road to South Road
This section includes a little bit of everything: unplowed roads, a short stretch of snowmobile trail, a 0.25-mile road walk, and long stretches of ungroomed trail through the Green Mountain National Forest. There is one long climb on a snowmobile trail and one steep, switch-backing descent to Rte. 30. Otherwise the terrain is generally level, with some gentle ups and downs.
Length: 9.0 miles
Except for the steep descent to Rte. 30, this section is easy to ski. Except for the 0.5 mile stretch on a snowmobile trail it is all ungroomed. Allow sufficient time if breaking trail through the usually deep snow. The intersection of Rte. 30 and French Hollow Rd. provides an intermediate bail-out point for breaking this section into two.
