“This is a nice trail to hike, run, or bike in the summer or ski in the winter.”— David Smith
Due to the Halloween Storm of 2017, many of the bridges have been washed away or moved.
The trail comes to a unnamed junction around 2.0 miles, where it takes a left uphill. Around 3.6 miles, the trail comes into a clearing of goldenrod and monarchs (September). The trail travels for a ways then crosses a few more clearings. Here, the trail becomes annoyingly brushy for a long stretch. The trail descends to a forest road, follows it right, then turns left off the road.
It travels for 0.2 miles, then runs into the Church Pond Trail; it coincides with the trail right. It splits right off the Church Pond Loop Trail, where the unmaintained portion of the Church Pond Loop Trail turns left. At 7.2 miles, the trail coincides with the Sawyer Pond Trail right. The "Nana" splits left off the Sawyer Pond Trail near the Sawyer Pond Trail. The trail climbs up a small hill, then descends to end Rob Brook Road.
Flora: Birch, Beaked Hazelnut, Goldenrod, Wild Raisin, Tawny Cottongrass, Leatherleaf, Blueberries, Red Raspberries, Blackberries, Red Maple, Eastern Hemlock, Beech.
Fauna: Monarchs, Red Squirrel, Grouse.
