Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · Wildlife

Family Friendly The trail is short and relatively level. Seasonally open (April - November) restrooms can be found across Nod Hill Road in the Weir Historic Site.

Description

This trail is a short, fairly level path through leafy woods. Expect lots of tree roots and some damp ground around streambeds. The almost circular pond is small and picturesque, perfect for a family outing with small children.

Flora & Fauna

Primarily surrounded by beech woods, expect mossy outcroppings and leaf litter on the trail all times of year. Seasonal bird life.
