Mattabesett Trail -Mica and Broomstick ledges from Cream Pot rd to Rt77

After meeting at the RT 77 blue trail parking lot(4.6 miles south of Durham, 4.3 miles North of Rt80 in Guilford) we will carpool to the access trail at Cream Pot Rd. This section of trail has several steep up and down sections to the various Mica ledges with several view points. Finish with a steep ascent of Broomstick ledges before returning to the parking lot on RT 77. Total distance is approximately 5 miles.


Well behaved people and dogs are welcome.

      Good Morning Dave, I won't be able to make the hike this morning, last minute changes in my day. This sounds like an energetic group that has been doing so great hiking, I am hoping I can make the one.
