Up the Hill to the parking lot
These rock piles were from the farmers clearing fields. There are piles of them all through the woods
If you like roots we have plenty of them
And rocky sections too !
Remains of the Old Company Mill Dam
Crabtree Creek at the Dam site
Looking upstream to the site ofthe old mill
This bridge was not built until the mid to late 80's to cross the creek
Steel Bridge built in the 80's so you no longer have to wade across
This is where you used to have to wade to get to trail on the otherside of the creek before the bridge was built
Rocky bluffs above the trail
Spot the Heron ?
There he is. Great Blue Heron
The trail is flat and folows Crabtree Creek for about a mile
Looking upstream. There is another old dam just ahead.
Before these bridges were built you had to climb in and out of all the drainages and ditches
The trail had to be re-routed here after frequent flooding washed away a section
Nice tree across the creek
The rare, late blooming Pink Mitten Tree only grows in this valley
An old millstone by the dam site
Rocky section of trail by the old mill site
Rocky Bluffs above the creek
