Two miles east of Vernon. The Paul Cook and Milton A. Gowdey memorial trails, two loops joined by a connecting trail, travel the Coventry and foster tracts of Parker Woodland, exploring the natural and cultural wealth. Special attractions: Solitude, bird and wildlife watching, historic sites, rich woods, spring and summer wildflowers, fall foliage. Travel a moist bottomland with half a dozen fern varieties, sweet pepperbush, trillium, wood lily, false Solomon’s seal, nettle, and azalea. A scenic boardwalk crosses the soggier reaches. At 0.4 mile, cross the footbridge over Turkey Meadow Brook, a slow, thin waterway adorned by drooping boughs and vegetation. A sawmill once operated alongside the brook.

Hiked this trail with the Webelos Patrol. It is a nice little hike with some elevation and plenty of interesting things for the kids to look at along the way.
