Description

The Scotch Lake Road Trail is an extension of the Little Mactaquac Trail. It starts by crossing the Little Mactaquac Stream. Just across the stream and on a small side trail is a shelter next to the stream. The trail then climbs away from the stream and forms a large loop that travels through a mainly softwood forest. The back of the loop goes through a wet cedar stand. A side trail takes you out to the Scotch Lake Road.
