Description

The trail starts by crossing a berm that has a small dam in the middle. The trail drops down below the dam and crosses a bridge and then climbs back up on the berm. On the other side of the berm the trail climbs a small hill and then turns to follow the shores of the pond. The trail travels through a mainly softwood forest. About mid-way around the pond there is a point that has an open area with a bench.

Gray Brook Marsh and Wetland

There are a few side trails that climb the hill away from the pond. These are private trails that lead up to a house. There are a few more nice views of the pond where it turns into more of a grassy marsh. The trail eventually comes to Gray Brook. There are cement pads leading up to a small bridge over the brook. Shortly after the brook the trail climbs a hill to the road. From here you can either turn right and return on the road, or return on the trail the way you came.

Directions

If you are coming from the Moncton direction, drive through Hillsborough and you will come to an intersection near the colored shops and power station. At this intersection turn right onto Golf Club Road (If you are coming from the Alma direction turn left onto Golf Club Road). Drive for 600 metres and you will see a pond on the left. There is a wide area to park near a small dock just after the start of the pond. Park here and walk back to the edge of the pond. The trail starts here.
