Bolton Notch, Bolton - part 2

I posted more photographs of yesterday's hike at Bolton Notch, CT. This flag was visible from the highway below. Today, I tried to snap a photograph of the flag rock from the highway. Hah, easier said than done. For safety's sake, I ditched the idea. The rock had more paint on it than any other rock I can remember seeing. The trail to the cave at the notch started right before this tunnel on the left.

When I was training for a half marathon last year, I ran through that eerie tunnel. Water trickled down the side of the damp, dark walls.

My article is again "with editor." What's next? Unknown.


  1. What's the easiest way to the flag rock?

  2. So sorry I didn't notice this until now. The quickest way to get there is to park off Route 44 at Bolton Notch. From the parking lot walk up to the trail and head left toward Vernon (tunnel is in opposite direction). You don't have to walk far to reach the trail on the right. It has a name, but of course I don't remember it. Follow the trail and keep bearing right as you ascend. The rocks are so covered with paint that they're pretty slick. Enjoy!
