This short trail winds through a canopy of birch, maple, and pine trees. Starting from a parking area along Everett Skinner Road the loop trail begins to the left of the sign. The trail then follows the shore of Old Mill Brook a bit before turning inland and uphill. The trails are mostly covered in pine needles along most of the loop. Be sure to look for and follow the white arrows to complete the loop. There are other trails that spur off of the loop. There is also a “bridge to nowhere” here. It is an observation deck that hovers over a small pond to view wildlife and plants. The loop is short, but several miles can be added to this walk on adjacent properties.
