Park at lot then proceed back toward road and down Echo Pond trail to beaver heaven (Echo Lake). Continue clockwise up to June Pond then up onto the Ridge Trail with lovely Mine Hill to your left. Take a little excursion up Tower Trail to the Cedar Hill summit. Come down the Cedar Hill Trail to Noanet Trail to lovely Chickering Lake. Proceed past the parade grounds and back to the parking lot. A wonderful loop!

Tried to get to 500' elevation gain over at Cedar Hill. Parked at the top and ran up and down 3x. Almost did it. Nice way to get the blood flowing!!!

Tried to max out my elevation gain today and managed to get to 500' on this trek. Nice day in the woods, nice visibility from Cedar Hill and the cooler is still in the hill --- see if you can find it. Gooday!

Was ok. Not really challenging but nice nonetheless. Be sure to check out all the trees that the beavers toppled. Pretty cool.

A "just do it" kind of day with Tropical Storm Jose just off the coast of New England throwing plenty of wind and rain our way. The trees were swaying and the rain was pouring but it didn't dampen my spirits much. No views from Cedar Hill and all the wildlife was hunkered down so it was just a nice trail run/walk.

What a great property. Did a nice loop today and enjoyed catching up with all the hard work the beavers are doing on the pond. Wow, they have sharp teeth. Continued up Mine Hill and around and then up Cedar Hill for a bit more exercise. Came down the Cedar Hill and Noanet trails past the camping spots back to my car. A perfect day!
