Canon Brook Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Starting at the base of the steep east face of Dorr Mountain, this trail begins with an easy jaunt through the woods and skirts south and west around the ridge and up the eastern flank of Cadillac, bringing you to a peaceful mountain pond called the Featherbed.

Some of the best views come as you climb the sheer open ledges on the way up to Cadillac’s ridge. You may even see a pileated woodpecker and other bird life, especially as you near the pond."

An easy hike through birch and aspen forest. Fun walking on boardwalk through a marshland. The trail comes to a nice riverbed with spectacular granite bed and a small pool for bathing. Continued on to Arthur Murray Young trail.
When combined with the trip to the Cadillac Mtn. summit, and back down the A. Murray Young Trail, this is a pretty strenuous hike. We took 5/2 hours to do it with our 11 year old son. We had a great hike, but were pretty beat at the end!
We were thankful that Canon Brooke was a gentle path through the woods. A word of caution as you skirt The Tarn as portions of the footpath are submerged during higher levels of rain. We eventually reached our car in Sieur de Monts and quickly changed into dry clothing.
