Little River Trail (WMNF)
This trail continues up the Little River Valley from the road which leaves the S side of the Daniel Webster Highway (US 3) m. W of the old B & M RR station. The road is passable for autos about 1 m. to the first crossing of the river where the trail begins. It follows the old logging railroad grade and logging roads and crosses the river many times (all bridges down) At 2 m., just beyond the third crossing, the Mt. Hale trail leads L and at once crosses the river. The main trail continues up the river and (after two more crossings) at 3.1 the North Twin Trail leads R. After two more crossings the trail climbs the steep head wall of the valley and joins the Twinway between South Twin and Guyot.
Distance. Little River Road to Twinway 6.4 m. (4 hr.).
