The main uphill is 'moderate' but lengthy. Includes the incredibly beautiful Mary Albertson Trail, and the Monoosnoc Brook where it empties into the Distributing Reservoir, falls down this series of flat steps creating a fantastic scene! Stand at the bottom and look upstream. You'll see quarry remains, beautiful trees and water.Show more
