Fall Colors · Views
A varied route, this stars off by taking you up to the summit of Catamount Hill via a somewhat steep grade. The views from the overlook (just below the actual summit) are some of the best around. From there wind through woods, along a babbling brook. The trail gets rocky at times. Head back towards the parking area on Bear Brook Lower
, and enjoy the cool, shady trail.
Start off on One Mile Trail
, following the wide, well-maintained old woods road trail for about 0.3 miles. Take Catamount Trail
to ascend, a somewhat steep and rocky trail to the summit of Catamount Hill. Though the summit is open, it is not above treeline, so the best viewpoint is actually just before the peak. Coming off the hill, stay right onto the Catamount Shortcut
to head down to Cascade Trail
. The trail is quite rocky and narrow as it bobs up and down through the woods. As you descend, you'll eventually follow Catamount Brook, before descending a short wooden staircase to reach One Mile Trail
Follow One Mile Trail
briefly before turning right onto Bear Brook Lower
. This shady section of the trail stays quite cool and is a lovely section of the run in the summertime. The trail ends right where you turned onto Catamount Trail
. A right takes you back to the parking area.
