Suffice it to say that the views rival the very best to be enjoyed from any promontory in southern New England. To relish the most dramatic effects, first-time visitors are encouraged to follow the Great Ledge loop in a clockwise direction.
A word about trail blazes: both the Pinchbeck and the Great Ledge Trail
are blazed in white. However, where the Pinchbeck enters Devil's Den, it may also carry the yellow blaze of The Nature Conservancy's marking system.
A word about nomenclature: Redding's Great Ledge is part of an escarpment that extends into Weston and the precincts of Devil's Den. Alas, folks down that way have historically called their part of the scarp "The Great Ledge" too. An impartial observer, however, would have to concede that, based on the quality of the view, Redding's half of the ledge is, by far, the greater. Therefore, with apologies to our neighbors south of the border, we have arranged our signs and maps to celebrate this territorial superiority. Ours is The Great Ledge. Theirs is the Ledge. Go in peace.
