The General is named in tribute to a fine gentleman and dedicated historian who was an integral part of the Mendon Town Forest project.RIP Paul Doucette! This trail runs through flowey, sweeping turns over typical New England terrain, crosses over several rocky outcroppings and one small bridge over a seasonally wet spot. Short but Sweet!
