Trail Overview

Entering off Route 42, the trail will be marked with town road signs at the start. During Winter the entrance may be blocked by a snowbank. The trail is single-vehicle-wide with limited spots to pull over. Downed trees will be encountered. Snow accumulation during Winter will be extreme. During Summer months Mountain Laurel blooms make this trail very picturesque. This is a public town road that passes through public and private forest preserves. Please respect private property and tread lightly by sticking to the trail.
