Need to Know

This trail has many steep, slippery sections. Please bring the appropriate equipment when running during the winter.

Description

This trail starts off the Campground Trail and runs northward. The trail follows, high above the brook as it descends to the Deer Hill Shelter. Here, at the Deer Hill Shelter, there is a historical privy (built around 1936). *There is more information posted on the privy.*

The trail is steep here, as it skirts around the hill. The trail descends some stone stairs into a deep ravine and crosses the brook. It ascends some loose switchbacks as it climbs up towards the falls. It approaches the falls over a jumbled mess of rock and fallen trees (the falls are particularly beautiful during the winter, when they are laden with ice). The trail climbs over some rocks and skirts around the hill, as it makes its way to the Roaring Brook Trail.
