Route Description

From the parking lot, follow the red trail markers. The trails is 2.6 miles long with the option of a loop ( yellow trail markers ) at 0.25 miles from the end of the trail. Return the same way to the parking lot.

There a nice waterfall near the end of the trail that is approximately 60 feet high. You can ice climb the waterfall during winter.

The trail is mostly flat. you gain approximately 100 feet of elevation over the 2.6 miles long trail. You can fill up your water bottles at the 1/3 of the way in a nice brook but always purify your water before drink it.

The trail stop at the Canada/U.S.A. border.

RED TAPE

I don't recommend this trail during late fall because of the hunting season.
