Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

A red-blazed pine soft and well groomed trail.

Need to Know

The trail runs above the dam. Take a quick detour down below to get a good look at the boulder structure and waterfall it creates.

Description

The trail can be accessed from the trailhead parking lot at Caryl Park off Dedham Street. The first quarter mile or so weaves through the woods on its way to Noanet Woodlands. There are plenty of unnamed trails along the way, so be sure to stick to the red blazes. The first major intersection you'll arrive at will be with Noanet Peak Trail.

Either hiking counterclockwise or clockwise, the trail eventually reaches the Dam and Mill site, which is located at the far end of the loop.

The trail is well groomed, and well blazed. Half of the trail is doubletrack (southern half of loop) and half is singletrack (northern half of loop).
