Description

This trail starts off the parking area at YMCA or Brayton Elementary School. Follow the blue blazes. Descend the stairs to the right of the sign for the Cascades Trail. The trail crosses a small brook over a bridge to Notch Road. It crosses Notch Road, follows Pershing Street, then turns right onto Marion Avenue. It follows Marion Avenue south to its end, then enters the woods. The trail mainly follows the brook, crossing over it twice. It crosses once by bridge and another by rock hop. The trail skirts the steep hill to the base of the Cascades. The water pours down into a small gorge, walled by schist. The trail ends here at the cascades.
