In the late 1700's, pioneers cleared fields and roads of rocks and stumps from the tracts now called Ricker Basin and Cotton Brook. At one time, a large settlement of 50 or so families lived in this area. The hard demands of the land, harsh winter weather and raging floods forced younger generations to abandon the farms. Today, old cemeteries, overgrown roads, crumbling bridges, bunches of daylilies and many cellar holes can still be found as evidence of a past community. The trail travels over a hilly path which is easy to negotiate as it passes several fast-moving streams. The trails connects the campground with the tiny town of Moscow.
Directions: From Junction of SR 100 and US 2, VT, Travel 1.5 miles west on US 2. Turn right (north) on Little River Road and go 3.5 miles to Little River State Park. The trail travels between the campground and the small town of Moscow.
