Need to Know

The trail crosses Fellsway East twice—be careful and watch for cars!

Description

Blazed in white, this is a loop trail that can be done in either direction from a variety of starting points. The parts of the trail closer to the Flynn Rink parking lot are a fairly gentle run in the woods, while the parts around to Fellsway East feature a fair amount of ascents/descents and some short scrambles.

Flora & Fauna

Look for lots of lady slipper orchids in late spring.
