Description

From the parking area next to the kiosk, the Blue/Orange trail leads into the park. Shortly, a yellow trail comes in on the left that creates a loop along the top of the ridge. Follow the Blue/orange trail as it descends along a pretty brook. In the spring, there are many wildflowers here. The Orange Trail leads up to the Yellow loop trail while the Blue Trail continues to descend along the brook. The Blue Trail eventually becomes part of the Yellow trail that leads out to Stonehedge Road.

NOTE: To create a loop from the Blue Trail back to the Yellow Trail, you will need to climb a short, but steep hill up to the ridge and the Yellow Trail.
