Description

Sandy’s Trail rises off Route 107 into a magnificent hemlock forest embracing a ravine with a seasonal brook. Keeping left of a low stone wall, the trail climbs past mossy rock outcrops, through high laurel bushes into deciduous woodlands. For a stretch, the trail follows an ancient roadbed between stone walls, then veers left to start a loop that leads past a wetland to an overgrown field. The trail traverses the field, then curves to reenter the woods and rejoin the old roadbed. The trail’s southern end is at the intersection of Routes 107 and 53. A quarter mile south on Route 53 (Glen Road) the entrance to Reservoir Trail is found on the right.

Avoid the Northern Loop which is overgrown not tended to.
