Sharon Audubon Center Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"From the map kiosk near the parking lot, follow the sign for Ford/Hal Borland trails, crossing the wooden bridge over Herrick Brook. At the trail junction at the Explorer Hut, turn left and follow Deer Trail’s rectangular red blazes among hemlock, sugar maple, red oak, and yellow birch.
Chunks of gneiss rock jut from the forest floor, while skunk cabbage, cinnamon fern, and sensitive fern thrive in the gurgling brook’s drainage. Red trillium (wake-robin) and jack-in-the-pulpit line the chipped path."
