“A winding singletrack running up and over Nimrod Rock.”

Fall Colors · Views
No dogs allowed between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Dogs permitted outside summer hours.
The trail is an alternate connector between Strawberry Hill Trail
and Oak Hill Trail
. The terrain is mostly softball-sized rocks protruding from the ground and very large boulders which are slick even when dry. The reward is a view from Nimrod Rock which looks over Powissett Farm (not visible from the perspective) and at Noanet Peak in Noanet Woodlands.
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.
