Notice: Skyline Trail Re-Route at Wright’s Tower

A notice to all hikers in the Bellevue Pond area:  due to significant erosion issues that have developed on the Skyline Trail/Wrights Tower Path between Quarry Road Path and Wright’s Tower proper, DCR staff have diverted and re-routed a section of the trail in order to prevent further erosion damage to this hillside and the surrounding area.

DCR rangers ask that all visitors using this route to please remain on the new trail section (follow the updated trail blazes in white!) and allow the area to recover naturally.


Friends of the Fells would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the contribution to this trail project by the volunteer group from American Well.  It was primarily due to their very hard work on their company’s service day that this trail re-route was completed– in only a few hours, no less!

Thank you Erin, Ben, Daniel, Leon, David D., David K., and Keith!  Your volunteer efforts for the Fells are sincerely appreciated!
