Enjoy a 30-minute hike through picturesque woodlands, featuring several elevation changes and large sections along a babbling brook. You'll pass through deciduous forests with large hemlocks and laurel thickets.
The main trail is orange-blazed and forms a lollipop loop. It follows the path of Cherry Brook, and includes a few steep climbs that offer breathtaking views of the stream and valley. A short blue-blazed trail runs roughly parallel to a portion of the orange trail stem, and includes a spur that leads to a nice view of the brook.
The trail is suitable for all seasons but is particularly beautiful in the middle of winter and in the early spring when the brook is flowing strongly.
