Midstate Trail: East Hill Road, Rutland to Route 9, Spencer

Lots of doubling back. Section(s) where trail crosses through 4H camp has recently been clear cut and trail is hard to follow. Some of the trail that travels through private property would be harder to traverse in the summer as brush would be a problem.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and squirrels.

Even in winter, a walk across the dam can be enjoyable.
