The trail follows a wide old road, which is considered "multi-use". 1930 foot Doll Mountain can easily be spotted through the trees about .3 miles into the hike.
We continued for about 1.5 miles to a wetland area near the Taconic Skyline Trail, before turning around. Here, a small stream flows down each side of the trail and drops into a steep ravine just ahead of this spot.
There are screened views to the east as we dropped back down the old road towards the truck.
Hiked 3 miles RT on a cold January day. The snow was only a couple of inches deep much of the way, with some deeper areas on the west side of Doll Mountain, where the snow had drifted.
