Between 1860 and 1920 most of the monolithic white pine and hemlock trees were felled by axe and cross-cut saw. The valuable softwood was used for many things, from ship masts to fine furniture. A short ride along the forest road takes you past an awesome mountain spring before returning back to the trees on a faint, old woods road. This somewhat rocky trail crosses a pipeline and turns right, following the Dry Hollow Trail. The Dry Hollow Trail braids its way between the banks of this seasonal stream. Along this stretch, you pass an old abandoned ski area on the left.
