The Hammond Brook Trail goes west (left) from the PMEC parking lot at the kiosk. It follows Hammond Brook and climbs to the reservation’s western boundary and then drops down to its terminus at Post 4 on the Eagle Trail. Return is by the Eagle Trail. Other trails connect, making variations in the traveled route possible. The upper section of the trail is rocky, making it more challenging and less rewarding (unpleasant) for skiers.

A self-guiding walk with its own brochure (available at the PMEC kiosk) follows the Hammond Brook Trail to the Timber Trail to Old Brook Road Trail. The signs and brochure were James Gagne’s Eagle Scout project.

Access Info Restricted Access

Mountain biking is permitted only from the Brook Road parking area to Timber Trail for access to Timber Trail, Hemlock Trail, and Bicentennial Trail starting points.
