Description

This trail branches off Alander Brook Trail and follows red blazes eastward. In a short distance, you'll reach Junction AFC 6; here, there is a unique rock spine with a small brook flowing from it.

The trail begins its ascent up the high north bank of Robert Brook. Unfortunately, there isn't an actual trail to the falls. The trail climbs up to the state line and turns left to follow it. It rises up to the height of the hill and ends at Junction AFC 4.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Wintergreen, Gray Birch, Mountain Laurel, Common Mullein, Eastern Hemlock, Red Oak.
Fauna: Gray Squirrel, Black-Capped Chickadees.
