Bickford Brook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"You’ll have no trouble keeping kids motivated along this hiking route. Three major “kid” features—two water slides and a mountain summit— will keep them racing along the trail to find out what’s next. At the Upper and Lower Bickford Slides, water streams down smooth rocks, collecting in pools that kids will find irresistible in warm weather. At the Blueberry Mountain summit, kids can munch on berries while the adults gaze at the view and try to name the distant peaks. A list of recommended items for the trip includes bathing suits or extra pairs of shoes for wading, long pants for protection through scratchy brush, containers for picking blueberries in season, bug repellent, and a camera to capture the picturesque water slides."
--Cynthia Copeland, Thomas J. Lewis, & Emily Kerr, Best Hikes with Kids: Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine (The Mountaineers Books).
"This rewarding hike leaves from the historic Brickett Place and takes you to a number of beautiful waterfalls and cascades along shaded Bickford Brook."
--Eli Burakian, Hiking Waterfalls in New England (Falcon Guides).
