Description

The East Branch Trail travels along an old road through an old mixed forest. At the first junction keep right and continue on an old road all the way to the stream. At the end of the road you will find a picnic table overlooking the stream. In the stream you will see many old logs sticking out of the stream and still forming a small dam. In the past log drivers would have made a larger dam here in order to drive cut logs down stream. The stream is not very big here so it's hard to imagine how much water they would have to dam to be able to drive logs down through the woods.

East Branch Trail

When you climb up the first hill from the stream you will find another junction you would have passed on the way in. Keep right at the junction and follow a trail back that meanders through the woods and past many large spruce and birch trees.
