The Great Cliff of Mount Horrid is actually a set of steep rocky cliffs which jut out of the rolling mountain attracting the nesting peregrine falcons. This trail may be closed in spring through midsummer to protect the falcons. Below lies a wetland known to attract moose, white-tailed deer, waterfowl, songbirds and beaver. This area is also known to attract cedar waxwings and tree swallows who fed on the mosquitoes that are attracted to the still waters.
