“One of the most wonderful spots in the Mahoosucs.”— Charles Danforth
Don't worry, it gets better.
After two miles and a couple of decent but doable hills, you'll cross the Mill Brook and start to climb purposefully toward the mountains ahead. Look carefully at 2.5 miles for a signed junction on the right for the Austin Brook Trail. Bear right half a mile later as the trail to Dryad Falls splits left. Continue climbing through birch, beech, and pine forest. The slope eases at mile 3.5 as you traverse some beaver bogs before meeting the final climb up to the lake and shelter.
