Description

Typical streamside trail for the most part, with cove hardwood forests, hemlocks, fern gardens and log bridges. Some muddy sections are out there, but the trail is mostly dry. It passes through some open meadows rimmed with flowering dogwoods near its upper end. These fields have been used to grow corn in years recently past; they can become overgrown with weeds in the summer. Follows the old Fletcher Creek Road.

Note: the log bridge at the intersection with the Spencer Branch and Middle Fork trails was washed away during the storms of September, 2004, so this is now a wet crossing.

    Jordan M. said: Lisa - that's a great idea and something we've been thinking about how to do properly. For now, we recommend using our Best Hikes section if you need more guidance than the raw trail details provide. Thanks for the comments and it's something we'll work to improve!
