This trail is a 0.4 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the Bigelow Trail over to the Babbling Brook Trail in Highland Park. To reach the trailhead either head down the Bigelow Trail, or head to the back of Sycamore Grove.

In the summer time, you can find blackberries and raspberries along the trail about 200 yards into the hike. You'll eventually cross the Babbling Brook Trail and then this trail will eventually end in Sycamore Grove. The waterfall listed here is shared with the Babbling Brook Trail - a few falls just a couple of feet high each.

This trail appears to be unnamed and unblazed, but it's a hidden gem in Highland Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
