Description

Trail starts at the parking area off of Pardon Joslin Road. The first segment shares a leg with the Orange Trail, but when you come to a T-intersection you follow the blue arrow to the right to go around the lake. There are numerous signs and painted markers on the trees to help you find your way.

There are numerous footbridges near the lake, including one over the small dam. Between the bridges that cross the lake there is an opportunity to do a very short out and back to a historical cemetery, and shortly after the last lake bridge (assuming a clockwise hike on the loop) there is an opportunity to pick up the yellow trail which is a slight extension that ties back into the blue trail later.

Flora & Fauna

Evergreen and deciduous trees, ferns, wildflowers, birds, squirrels, rabbits, deer.
