the map at the start of the trail of bee Brook is slightly off when you are trying to reach the quartz mine off the orange circle trail. hard to describe just how to get there but you do have to explore just a bit to find it.

Good trail. Unfortunately the whole trail was ice on 1/2/17. Fortunately, we had crampons for our hiking boots which made the whole trek easy.

Walked the left loop away from the water and was disappointed by the noise of the road for the first half of the loop. However was very pleased by the loop along the water. It was a delight to hear the sounds of the water flowing over the rocks. The trail down was a switchback and gets you eventually down to the water. As you continue you can detour to walk on or across two bridges.

The kids and I really enjoyed this trail. We are looking forward to going back in the spring when everything is green again. Great walk/hike. Took us about an hour (including stopping to look around at times) to do the full loop. We may have been able to do it faster, but we were enjoying looking around and exploring a bit.
