QUICK TRAIL FACTS

- Trail Mileage: 0.6 miles one way
- Pets: yes
- Difficulty: easy
- Sights: Thoit's Brook
At this 14-acre preserve, you can follow a multi-use snowmobile trail for a bit more than half a mile through the woods and across a wide section of Thoit’s Brook. The snowmobile trail continues beyond preserve boundaries—which are all very well marked. The walking is easy, with a fairly long, somewhat steep hill down (and back up again!) to the brook.
Directions: The trailhead is at the beginning of an old road, across the street from Pownal Elementary School and next to Elmwood Cemetery. The road shoulder here is wide, allowing for limited parking.
