We didn't do the whole route. I went with my sister. I parked at the 4H Camp in Spencer. She picked me up and we drove to East Hill Road in Rutland to start the hike on that end. Took us 2-1/2 hours.

It was fun! Nice easy trail. We took our time, took some pictures. I can see it getting pretty wet in a few spots if it had rained recently.

Note: When you come out on Browning Pond Road where you're not near the pond (it comes out on that road twice), the trail marker sends you to the right. You need to go left.
