Overview

The parking lot is at the highest spot on the trails system. Any hike will feel great going out and tiring on the way back to the lot! Be sure to leave some gas in the tank for the return journey!

Description

This route features all singletrack trails. The trails give a feeling of wilderness as you pass cliffs, ridges, ponds, and boardwalks.There are some mushy areas in the springtime, so be prepared with proper footwear. Users won't be disappointed, as it is a beautiful park.

This specific hike features Cole's Kettle, a natural pond/wetland area formed by glaciers. All of the surrounding forest drains into the kettle and then into the ground water for nearby wells.

Eventually, the trails can be used to connect over the highway to Butler Sanctuary.
