This triangular loop route boasts a trifecta of water attractions— lovely cascades along Lulu Brook and two of the state’s highest natural water bodies—scenic Berry Pond and Tilden Swamp, a former bog turned beaver pond. Walk to the far (north) end of the parking lot and cross paved Berry Pond Circuit Road diagonally to a brown iron forest gate adjacent to where Lulu Brook flows under the road. A sign marks the start of Lulu Brook Trail (not recommended in icy conditions).
