STONEHOUSE ROAD MAP
Present day Stonehouse Road begins at Route 9N on the AuSable River and climbs to a split rail fence at the Fourpeaks camp entrance, a rise of 450 feet in elevation in only 7/10 mile, providing excellent mountain views from the many fields and openings along the way. A public highway since ancient times, and a most important attraction to Fourpeaks visitors, open year round, it's maintained by the Town of Jay (public vehicle access, not private).

Hiking/Walking Trails & Beauty Spots.
Home to seven families during the last century, Fourpeaks valley is covered by developed roads and skid trails settlers used to access their fields, woodlots and pasture lands. A fire on Basset Mountain in the early 60's left a network of fire roads as well. Salvage harvesting after the great Ice Storm in January '98 improved access to the higher elevations. Fourpeaks 4 mountains (Bassett, Wainwright, Rattlesnake and Ebenezer) are friendly 2,000-foot peaks which can provide hours and days of pleasant discovery for both the seasoned hiker and everyday walker--afoot, or on snowshoes or skis! Trails lead to summits and ridges with river, valley and mountain views, and to beauty spots worth visiting. For a private experience you don't have to drive to--away from the crowds on overused public trails.

Whether you're an experienced webmaster or just a novice surfer, you may have feedback or suggestions to help us improve. We well remember the visitor who complained about the unpleasant glare from the HTML default royal blue links. That lead us to entirely revamp our background and link colors, making them softer, more eye pleasing. And the Florida expert who warned us about frustrating visitors with blind links. We followed his advice and now carefully identify links so visitors know before they "click" exactly where they're clicking to. Your comments or suggestions will be equally appreciated.
