Here, the 50 and 62 routes continue on rolling terrain past Crotched Mountain and through the villages of Bennington, Hancock and Greenfield.
Here the 50 route returns to Francestown, rejoining the 25 route with a turn onto a mostly downhill stretch of the First NH (Francestown) Turnpike and turn onto Lyndeborough Road. The 62 route continues on its own mostly downhill stretch following Route 31 and Center Road in Lyndeborough to Fitch's Corner in Milford. A gradual climb to Mt. Vernon, then a rolling stretch of the Francestown Turnpike will lead to Lyndeborough Road where all three routes reunite for the return to Molly’s Tavern.
