Description

You can find a trailhead on other side of the Damon Pond spillway bridge. You'll see a wooden bridge below the spillway, which takes you right onto the trail. The first mile of the trail is fairly smooth with some loose large rock. The trail is right against the brook. Dips in the trail do collect water and can be muddy.

At around 1 mile, the trail begins to turn into the hillside and begins climbing away from the brook. This section is very narrow and a little uneven, but very short.
