Description

A connector trail from North Road to the trails at Peaked Hill Reservation, this wide path meanders uphill alongside old stone walls, under large red maples, through a native shrub swamp, and over a boardwalk to cross a seasonal stream, with views onto an open wet meadow filled with native ferns and wildflowers. The hillside of Osmundastrum cinnamomeum, cinnamon fern, is especially beautiful in spring and early summer. The connector trail starts on the south side of North Road, 1/3 mile southwest of Menemsha Hills Reservation, and about 3/4 mile northeast of the Menemsha Crossroad.
