“A 3-mile loop that runs along the Yokun Ridge.”— David Smith
Along this stretch, you'll be treated with a scant snack of red raspberries and skunk currants. The red raspberries help alleviate the fetid taste of the skunk currants ... or just skip the currants. The trail bounds over two humps, then turns right when it reaches the Reservoir Road Connector. You'll pass by the homesite of John Gorman (on the left) before coming to the junction with Old Baldhead Road.
At this junction, Burbank Trail turns right and descends down the valley. It passes by Monks Pond, where you might be able to see salamanders and fish. It follows along the Monks Pond outflow and passes by a log bench, near the brook. The trail ends back at the first junction. Take a left to get back to Olivia's Overlook Parking.
Fauna: Chipmunk, Grey Squirrel, Fish, Salamanders, Toads.
