This 1.5 mile loop trail offers a climb through a mixed forest which is home to a variety of wildlife including white-tailed deer, black bear, snowshoe hare and long-tailed weasels.

The trail begins on the old logging road across from the park entrance. Hike only .1 mile and follow the blue-blazed path which bears left. Follow this trail to the junction with a logging road. Bear left again and travel through an old cemetery. The trail starts off in a mixed hardwood forest of birch and beech and turns to red oaks and red spruce as it ascends to higher elevations. As you climb the path, you'll be rewarded with sporadic views of Echo Lake and the park property. Once you reach the overlook, the trail turns back, crosses Buffalo Brook and then rejoins the logging road. Note: you must rock hop to cross the creek.
