Getting There

Easy trail along river with good swimming The trail is an old railroad bed. It is generally wide and easy to follow with few obstacles. You are frequently next to the river which has many good swimming holes. The trail is ONLY marked near the outhouse (see picture). It swings around next to the brook (behind the campground) before joining the old railbed. Shortly you will come to the junction of the Moriah brook trail / imp shelter. Continue straight with the Wild Brook on your right for 2.7 miles to Spider Bridge. Cross the bridge and continue on past the Spruce Brook Shelter (lean to (sleeps 8) with 2 tent platforms). Within a mile you will reach the Red Brook. Both the Spruce Brook and Red Brook can be difficult to cross in high water.

From 113 in Gilead near the Hastings campground follow the Wild River Campground road 5.7 miles. Park in the hiker lot just before the campground. There is a fee tube so you should have a check or several dollars to buy a parking permit. The access road is closed in the winter.
