On Route 301, the Cold Spring Turnpike, 3.4 miles east of Route 9 you will see this sign that marks one entry point of the trail.
It loops around through the woods to the north then back across the turnpike returning on the south side of the road back to your starting point.
Even in winter the trail is green, rich with mountain laurel and moss. The laurel bushes bloom in June with gentle white and pink flowers. Looking forward to that come the Spring.
The path is narrow in many places and often you are walking on ancient boulders strewn here by some might glacier.
Rivlets of sparkling water from the melting snow made the rocky trail dangerous and enchanting.
There is a short unmarked path that brings you to the pond’s edge.
Someone left a hefty stump where you can sit for a moment or hours.
And crisp blue sky.
