5. Steep and Steady Climb

The trail turns to the left and begins a gradual ascent. Cross an old woods road and continue following the white blazes. The next .7 miles is a steep and steady ascent to the crest of Ten Mile Hill. The white blazes thread their way along a narrow path through a boulder strewn hemlock forest. The trail, twists and turns, left then right as you ascend.

At the intersection of the white and blue blazes, continue following the white blazes for ten minutes to the first crest of the hill. Continue your ascent following the white blazes to reach the dramatic westward view of the Litchfield Hills from Ten Mile Hill.
