"The trail passes just above the cistern, then eases on down the hill a little away from it. You will begin to notice piles of rock out in the woods along the trail. Usually, folds would clear their fields of rocks and build walls with them. They needed to get the rocks out of the way so that they could plow the ground. I’m not exactly sure what happened here, but the rocks were simply put into piles instead of building walls with them. The trail does pass next to a small wall in this area, but most of the rocks are in piles. It certainly was easier to just pile them up, but I wonder if there was another reason. We will see some nice rock walls in a bit."
