Frenches ledges is one of several interconnected trails in this area. They are well marked. Mountain biking is good on well maintained trails and you can climb to the ledges for a 360 degree view.

Great hike when you are short on time. Beautiful views from the top and a great brook at the bottom. Bring the whole family.

Great Family Hike with a wonderful view!

Very well marked and maintained trails, two entrances on Colby Hill (the long way) and two more further up the road on Columbus Jordan road (the shorter way). I prefer the first one on Columbus Jordan, dirt parking and its the junction of the Ledge trails and the Farnum lot trails. The summit view from the ledge is a must see!

Frenches ledges is one of several interconnected trails in this area. They are well marked. Mountain biking is good on well maintained trails and you can climb to the ledges for a 360 degree view.

At least 4 trail heads but here are two:

From Colby Rd: 43.55610, 72.27143 This is a widend pull off can take 4 cars

From Columbus Jordan RD: 43.55273, 72.28220 A marked and mowed spot can take 4 or 5 cars. This area is better for mountain bikes then the one on Colby rd.
