Trail shared by David Smith

A winding trail along the ridges and valleys of Bear Swamp Reservation.

Description

This trail starts from the parking area (on Hawley Road) and travels southwest to the junction with Beaver Brook Trail. Here, the trail coincides with the Sanderson Academy Trail to Beaver Brook Trail. The trail turns right and climbs up a small ridge. It follows the ridge southward past some decent views. The trail descends, then turns right into a small valley. When it meets up with North - South Trail, it coincides with the trail to the right. Lookout Trail turns left at the sign for Orchard Overlook. This trail ends at the top of the apple orchard, at a stone bench.
