Parking Lot Guidelines:
  • The preferred parking pattern is to pull in on the left and right side; Do not parallel park in order to maximize space.
  • Do not park on the road if the lot is full. Overflow parking is across the street, where there are signs directing the way and a post on the kiosk about overflow.
  • No cars are allowed in parking lot between dusk and dawn.

Description

You can tell this loop trail is popular, as it is well worn and marked with plenty of white blazes and signs. The steepest part is pretty rocky and can be slick in wet and/or humid weather. Expect this section just east of Indian Pond. If you start the loop going clockwise, the climb is gradual, and you'll get to descend the steepest part.

The parking lot is a decent size and holds at least 10 cars.

Flora & Fauna

Visit this area in the autumn to see it erupt in fiery fall color.
