About the maps
TrailTripTip: To find monument MA3, take Route 71 to the end and turn left onto Route 23 east toward Great Barrington. Turn left at the intersection with Route 7 and follow Route 23 through the City. At the north end of town, turn right and cross river, following Route 23. Watch for monument on left in small green as you bare right on Route 23 where Route 7 bears left.

Notes: This marker stands on State Route 71. It is believed moved from another location, because Route 71 would not line up with the old 1926 Route 23 location of this part of the Trail.

Context: Primary source documentation for this part of the expedition is generally lacking. However, we are working with historians in Massachusetts to develop context information for each of these locations, and this will be added here at a later date.
