Wonderful for after work or spur of the moment walk. View of Baker Valley from Brooks Hill Trail is lovely! Then circle around by the field and head down by the river. Lots of variety for a short hike!

you know what'd be even better about this place? being able to enter the house.

i must've tried every single window; apparently they've got locks.

also the hill close by? very nice.
