Barrell Ridge’s long open summit offers extraordinary views of the surrounding country—lakes, ponds, rocky mountains, and the endless North Woods. The trail passes across open ridges with views and blueberries. Barrell Ridge runs northwest to southeast, separated from North Traveler by Dry Brook’s steep valley. The mostly open summit offers, in the words of one of the trail signs, extraordinary views. The Middle Fowler Pond Trail climbs steadily from South Branch Valley through mature hardwoods. After a short, steep climb, you reach the shoulder of Little Peaked Mountain. Hardwoods give way to evergreens. The trail slabs around, then follows a relatively flat ridge top.
