Map #16 – Songbird Side Trail
This side trail has been opened on a recently acquired BTC property on the west side of Airport Road between Escarpment Sideroad and Finnerty Road. This buttonhook loop trail leaves the main trail and heads west through red pine plantation and naturally regenerating old fields, before entering a hardwood forest in very rugged, typical moraine topography. Shortly after crossing a deep gulley, the trail reaches the junction of the loop portion, which may be walked either clockwise or counter-clockwise. There is no exit at the west end; hikers must return to the main Trail by the same route on which they entered. Length of trail is 1.2 km. Total distance in and out is 1.8 km.
