Dunbar Brook

Dunbar Brook Professional Review and Guide

"Old-growth trees, massive boulders, and a roaring flow make the Dunbar Brook Trail a path of superlatives. A steep slope leads to a stretch of graveled woodland roads that enable a great loop through wild uplands at the northeastern edge of the Berkshires. Fording the brook during high flows can be difficult.

From the parking area, where a stylized map and recreation area rules are posted, follow the rough track up the inclined power line corridor for about 150 feet to a footpath on the right where you enter a dark hemlock wood. Blue blazes mark the trail. Do not follow the wooden staircase fitted with railings down to the small concrete dam that spans the brook.
Amble along the hill’s contour beneath shade-casting hemlocks along a rocky slope."
