Spring Brook Trail winds its way through woods and old fields, along small intermittent streams. Maples and sycamore trees grace the banks of Little Bonne Femme Creek, which is crossed twice. One crossing is over a 100 ft. foot bridge and the other by wading the stream. Near Gilbert Shelter Spring Brook Trail winds its way through woods and old fields, along small intermittent streams. Maples and sycamore trees grace the banks of Little Bonne Femme Creek, which is crossed twice. At the eastern crossing, a 100-foot bridge provides a dry crossing. The western crossing lacks a bridge and may require minor wadding. During high water, it is not safe to cross. White connector 5 is available to shorten your hike and white connector 4 is available for access to Sinkhole Trail. Mountain biking is permitted only when the trail is dry.

Ok, very moderate effort required, a romp in the woods, needs better marking though, bridges across creek are highlights, does it really take that much to apply some decent trail badges? Picnic and staging area at trailhead are in excellent condition, clean and kept; why not pour about 2 hours' effort into letting hikers know where to go on this hike, since there are other trails in the complex?

Really nice trail even though the path is not well marked and it is easy to end up on another trail.

I love this trail just like all the others in the Rock Bridge system, but they really need to mark their trails better.
