Description

This trail branches off a snowmobile trail, just east of Wahoo's. It follows a little-used section along the edge of Beaver Brook to Whites Road. Cross the bridge, then turn right onto the snowmobile trail. It follows the snowmobile trail for a short ways, then stays straight to follow the brook.

It crosses a small footbridge, then climbs a steep hill. The trail climbs steadily up to the dip in-between the hilltops. Here, you can see Grampa and Gramma Maple, two large Maples.

The trail climbs over the next hilltop, then descends through an old orchard. It travels in-between some swamp lands, before arriving at the trailhead on West Lake Avenue.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Red Spruce, Norway Spruce, Apple Trees, White Birch, Eastern Hemlock, Cattails, Sugar Maple.
