The out-and-back walk to Coginchaug Cave is along the Mattabesett Trail, a section of the New England National Scenic Trail. From the trailhead near the top of the hill, the blue-blazed Mattabesett Trail on the right enters a scenic woodland of yellow and black birch, beech, and sassafras rising above a shrubby understory of witch hazel and sweet pepperbush. Sweet pepperbush, also called Indian soap and summersweet, is recognized by its slender spike of dainty white summertime flowers. The plant prefers the moist, rich soils at the edges of wetlands. When the flowers are rubbed between wet palms, the petals produce a light, white lather.
