Trail shared by Rory Nugent

A short jaunt that travels along a narrow marsh and leads out to a bench with a view of Beaver Brook.

No motorized vehicles. No overnight camping. No fires. No littering.

Need to Know

Given that this section is marshy, there are several wooden plank crossings that go over mud or water.

Runner Notes

This trail alone wouldn't suffice as a full run, but it can be a nice way to add a half mile at the beginning or end of a longer run.

Description

This unnamed green-blazed trail is a short loop off of the gravel Ford Road. If you park in the lot off Old Beach Glen Road, you can access this trail by traveling less than a quarter mile down the Ford Trail (Red) and making a right at the first sight of green markers. The markers will be pointing right.

Follow the trail down a narrow marsh path and over several wood plank crossings out to a bench overlooking Beaver Brook. This is a nice place to pause and take pictures before moving on. The loop will take you back to the gravel Ford Road where you'll make a left and return to the same place you started.

The maps that are currently provided at the parking areas show this trail as a short hook with a different start and finish, however the trail blazes create a loop. This recorded trail reflects the actual blazes.

Flora & Fauna

Beavers certainly live in Beaver Brook. Even if you don't catch a glimpse of one, you'll likely see their handiwork.
