From Bush Notch northward, the trail climbs to the crest of East Mountain and follows its ridge. It proceeds in the solitude of seemingly remote woodlands. Alternately it searches out spectacular viewpoints from the west edge of the escarpment. An attractive alternate route meanders along old, mossy woods roads near the lovely shores of the Hugh McLean Reservoir, joining the main route again just south of US-202.
Note: There is no potable water on this secton, bring an adequate supply.
