HIGHLIGHTS: The Appalachian Trail leaves Upper Goose Pond and crosses Interstate 90 within a mile and eventually climbs to the summit of Becket Mountain at 2,180 feet. Goose Pond is seen to the south and a register box is on the tree. The overgrown summit of Walling Mountain is the next peak in this section and it is at 2,220 feet a few miles before the October Mountain shelter. The Trail then continues past the Kay Wood Lean-To and winds its way down to Dalton, a small town of around 8000 people.
