“A winding singletrack running up and over Nimrod Rock.”— Kevin Ketchman
There are two "peaks" along this trail. The first, if heading south, is Powissett Peak. This is where the majority of the rocks and boulders are located. The trail also does a lot of zig-zagging.
The second "peak" is Nimrod Rock. Still heading south, there is a notable turn in the trail that is not well marked. Hikers will exit tree cover and have an uphill dirt trail to the left and a trail entering the woods straight ahead. Turn left and head up the hill. The trail turns back into the woods. This takes you to Nimrod Rock.
Flora: There are wildflowers throughout the trails, including a variety of orchid.
