Description

Blackman’s Brook Trail, the northernmost segment of Westway, begins off Charlie Hill Road, just south of Marchant Road. The trail crosses below a stone dam that holds back the waters of Blackman’s Pond, and continues south.

On high, dry ground, the trail provides good views of this attractive watercourse. A number of impressive oaks mark the way. The trail crosses and recrosses the brook, then picks up blue blazes for the rest of its way to Topstone Road.

Shortly after the second brook crossing, white blazes strike west on the Steichen Westway Connector to the Steichen Preserve’s Huckleberry Swamp.
