That is interesting terrain Bill, is it in Lynnfield? I go up to the Res up by Spot Pond and it looks similar. It would be great to find other trails like that.

Hello Don - this at one of the higher elevations in Bow Ridge Reservation at the end of Ledge Road in the old quarry area. It's sort of a right turn and up from the main trail into the reservation. - Bill Laforme

Sure enough. I used to run up those power lines behind the bowling alley about 30 years ago. The hills were a good workout. There may be similar terrain up near Sagamore Golf Course, but may be private also. Thanks.
