The Pedlars Edge trail connects to the Blackrock Trail. It is named after the geologic formations found at this elevation–the “pedlar formation,” which was formed 1.1 million years ago. The power-line section is a birdwatchers delight with the creation of edge that increases wildflowers and seeds for birds to feed upon. Allow extra time for access and return. Use caution in winter.
