Between the boulder and the kiosk, a triple black-square-on-yellow blaze marks the start of the Manaticut Point Spur Trail. Head into the woods on this trail. Soon, you'll cross two branches of a stream on rocks, with several abandoned sections of concrete pipe adjacent to the stream, and pass by a huge fractured rock. A short distance beyond, you’ll cross another stream..

Huge blowdowns on yellow trail
Did this hike on 6/22/17. Just past the point where the yellow trail splits off to the left and right, the right trail is blocked by 3 or 4 huge trees that have blown down. The trail can still be followed if you just figure out your way around the mess. The hike was great aside from that. However, the views along the blue trail aren't much to write home about in my opinion. Overlook rock and Manaticut point are the best parts of this hike.
