I started this hike from the parking area by the nature center and started following the red trail. I was immediately met by a flurry of small birds including many sparrows and woodpeckers. I followed the red trail to its end as it wandered through areas of forest and boulders. I then turned left onto the orange trail passing a small pond. At the next intersection I turned left and followed the green trail. There were many trees down at the time of this hike and I had found some difficulty following the green trail but I did manage. I then turned left following the blue trail. This trail merged with the yellow blazed Vin Gormley Trail for a bit. There are a couple narrow trails that lead to the shore of Watchaug Pond and I took advantage of them for some photography. I then resumed following the blue/yellow trail until the blue broke off to the right. I continued following the blue trail through a memorial garden and then left back to the parking area.
