Jacobs Hill Trail Professional Review and Guide

"As you drive along the road that winds uphill toward the Jacobs Hill trailhead, thank your car for doing most of the climbing on this trip! Just about 0.5 mile from the start of this quick and easy hike, the woods open to reveal lovely views of hills rising over a lonely pond—an ideal picnic spot.

On the return leg, you’ll follow a crooked brook that empties into a deliciously swampy swamp full of croaking critters. (Have the kids bring a net in case they want to examine a frog or crayfish up close.)"
