The trail traverses the Avery Field near the site of the former Avery Farm and ascends the west slope of Pine Mountain. Open blueberry barrens at the summit provide spectacular views of the entire Belknap Range, including Mount Major and Lake Winnipesaukee, as well as excellent berry picking in season. Park in the Town of Alton's Mike Burke Forest trailhead lot for the Mike Burke Loop trail. To reach the Morse Preserve, cross Avery Hill Rd. and walk to the right about 200 ft until you reach the "Evelyn H. & Albert D. Morse, Sr. Preserve" sign.
