Need to Know

The farm to the north has roped off the majority of its property but leaves the trail open for visitors. The brook can overflow and flood the area after rain.

Runner Notes

Be prepared to be calf deep in water if running on the trails after rain. The brook can overflow and flood the surrounding area.

Description

The Large Loop is a mix of grass, hard-packed dirt, loose rock/soil. Most of the trail was covered in pine needles or leaves. The trail crosses the Queset Brook twice.

On the northwest part of the trail, there is a nice wooden bridge that crosses the brook with a view of a small pond area. The other crossing has no bridge. The trail area closer to this part of the brook (roughly the east part) is a swamp. The main trail is okay to run on but can be a bit muddy after rain. Also, this part of the brook can become quite flooded after heavy rainfall, spreading out from the main brook to the surrounding swamp area making following the trail and crossing the brook a little wet and muddy.

The trail also comes out in a farm field on the north part of the loop. The farm has posted stakes and ropes to let visitors know the boundary of the trails and their property. Deer and turkey have been spotted in the field. There are no major hills on the loop, but a few decent ups and downs, enough to make your legs feel it a bit.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and turkey have been spotted on trails. Queset Brook passes through trail area with swamp areas near the brook.
