3/4/2017, sunny in the 50s and 60s. West of the parking lot a road leads to Braille trail. This eventually turns into Beaver Brook trail. The trail can also begin right next to the restrooms by the parking lot. As of yesterday there were spots of snow and mud, but overall fairly dry. I'd personally suggest wearing boots. It took me about 2.5 hours with minimal stops
A wooded hike that has some beautiful openings and eventually goes down into the creek bed. The trail has you cross over the creek several times, but not every crossing has a bridge. I managed the unabridged crossings fairly easily due to ice cover. I'm not sure how it goes in the warmer months as I didn't see any logs to help cross. Overall very enjoyable, I didn't run into another person for the first hour and this was on a Saturday around 11am.
This is one of my favorite trails - would definitely do this again! It starts off very easy then becomes a bit of a nature obstacle course - kind of like jumping over logs, skipping over rocks in the middle of a stream, climbing over some boulders. It wasn't super difficult but it was a very fun trail to hike. Pretty natural surroundings. Not super crowded.
Awesome trail overall. I'll start with the good. It would be nice to have markers with how ma y miles you've gone or are left though. The waterfall definitely was hyped up way more than it was,still a nice trail. Several different trail heads so know where you are starting. Can get confusing. Good scenery and good for dogs. This is def longer than 3.9 mile trail. We mapped at least over 5.6 miles.
Fun trail. Definitely, will work you out! Not many views as others said. Most of the views are as you are driving in the place. 3.9 miles is not accurate. This is a 4.9 mile trail. Will take you 2-3 hours pending how quick you walk. Took me 2.5 hours, 5 miles, with another friend, and a dog walking at a rough 3mph pace.
