Description

The recreational trail winds deep into the rugged and beautiful terrain surrounding Sprucedale. The trail begins on a boardwalk that stretches across a solitary beaver pond and then proceeds into a forest where you will come across broad maples and high ridges. Your trek will take you past wildlife filled marshes and what is commonly known as the “talking rock”. You may not see deer, moose or beaver, but all around will be signs of their activity.
