Description

This trail begins at the parking area at the end of Fort Hill Road. The trail descends before turning left and following the edge of the marsh. This provides nice views of the marsh all the way. It continues until it meets the Red Maple Swamp Trail at the Native American sharpening stone area. It doubles back through the woods, meeting the Red Maple Swamp Trail again, and continuing through another parking lot on Fort Hill Road. After a short road walk, the trail visits the Penniman House. Finally, the trail climbs back up Fort Hill, back to the parking lot.
