Description

This trail starts off a small parking area at the base of the Fitch Memorial Forest. In 100 feet or so, you'll pass Running Pine Trail (on the left). The trail ascends over a few switchbacks to arrive at the upper junction with the Running Pine Trail (on the left). It crosses over a stone wall, and turns right into a hemlock forest. It appears that the stone wall marks the edge of the Fitch Memorial Forest. The trail turns left at a fenceline, and follows it up towards Bee Hill. It rises over the rocky crest of Bee Hill, then turns right downhill. It descends to the junction with the RRR Brooks Trail. It ends, here, above Flora Glen Brook.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Beech, Maple, Eastern Hemlock, Pine.
