Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike ascends Mount Algo and follows the ridge along Schaghticoke Mountain. At Indian Rocks, the Trail is on the Schaghticoke Indian Reservation, which is part of the last major American Indian stronghold in Connecticut. Indian settlements at the confluence of the Housatonic and Ten Mile Rivers date back to prehistory, and in 1730 more than 100 Indian families still lived in the area.

From the parking area, walk east on CT 341; then follow the A.T. south, ascending through the woods. At 0.4 mile, follow a woods road to the right for a short distance before heading left into the woods and ascending gradually. At mile 0.5, a side trail leads right to water and the Mount Algo Shelter. Continue along the A.T. and reach the height of the land at mile 1.2. Cross Thayer Brook at mile 1.5. After Thayer Brook, ascend steeply up a rocky path to the high point of Schaghticoke Mountain at mile 2.3. From here, the Trail follows ledges that offer good views to the south."
