From the parking lot, the trail leads into the woods and climbs moderately to a bridge at 0.2 miles. The trail continues beside a stream to a second stream crossing that has no bridge, but can be crossed on rocks. Ascending steadily after the second stream crossing, the trail climbs to a third stream crossing after which the terrain is gentler. The trail arrives at the outlet of Abbey Pond at 2.1 miles. Abbey Pond supports a community of marsh plants and animals. This trail is sometimes closed to protect nesting great blue herons. Watch for the closure posters. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
