Little used trail follows scenic waterfall, spillway The trail starts out with a beautiful 1/2 to 1 mile easy trek next to a series of Waterfalls. There are several picnic tables and excellent swimming holes along the way. After following the brook at a nice even pace for about 2 miles the trail suddenly deteriorates. There is considerable erosion and at times it is hard to tell the trail from crisscrossing dry brooks. Here the vertical gain starts, not too steep but steady. This part of the trail is not heavily hiked nor well maintained. After 3 miles you reach the junction with the Dunn Brook trail. The Dunn brook trail is more heavily used and here the trail is easier to follow. You may also meet other hikers. Only 1 mile to the summit. As you ascend you start to have some boulders to crawl over. There are 3 small ladders (2 metal, 1 wood) tactically placed to assist you. You also start getting peeks of lovely vistas.

Excellent trail! Well maintained and gorgeous scenery. We hiked in October and had no issues with bugs. We did see many moose prints but no moose sightings. Next time!
