This is the cairn at Elderslie Preserve. From the trail, you can't tell that it is U-shaped. I wonder how old it is?

This is not the first time I've seen elaborate cairns in the New England woods. I used to think they were built by boy scouts as little engineering projects, but after reading some pages at the NEARA site, I'm not so sure. I don't know what to make of NEARA, whether to take them seriously or not. I'm not the only one to be intrigued by cairns.
