We started off through a field followed by a climb, steady but not too hard. We had one rather steep treacherous descent down some stone steps. Slow going, I'm glad I didn't have a full pack. We walked alongside the Housatonic River for a flat, fast 4 miles. Then a climb, a descent, and trail magic! We sat down with some other hikers for cold drinks. Met our first southbounder, Bear. More climbs and river crossings, more forest walking and finally through a corn field, onto the street, and into the town of Falls Village, where Mom & Dad had dropped off our stuff at the Toy Makers Cafe.
Spent the night tenting outside the cafe. Rainy, humid night.
