Marengo River / Swedish Settlement

Marengo River / Swedish Settlement Professional Review and Guide

"Three overlooks and the remains of a historic Swedish settlement. This short stretch of the North Country Trail has a lot to offer. Three scenic overlooks offer a steady stream of vistas, and the remains of a Swedish settlement pull in history buffs. A pleasing hardwood forest lines the trail, and native brook trout dimple the surface of the Marengo River.

Begin your outing by walking east from Forest Road 202. A short ascent brings the trail onto a plateau, and .5 mile later, at mile 0.6, the first over-look appears just south of the trail. This rock dome offers broad views of the Marengo River valley to the southeast and a horizon of wooded hills."

Hot and muggy. Bring insect repellent. A beautiful rolling walk through the woods.
