two 1.6km loops - 45-60mins each - hiking
Gnarled beeches provide colour in all seasons on this gentle trail. In the early spring last year's pale leaves catch the sun and rustle in the breeze. Soon they give way to spring green, and then darken to provide pleasant summer shade. Look carefully and you can spot an ancient hemlock amongst them. In some places Grafton Lake can be glimpsed through the trees. A short boardwalk lets you cross the wetland where bog plants grow and small birds forage.
