Within several feet of the road, Lulu Cascade can be seen. It is only about 4 feet high, but very pretty.
Further along the trail there are many other small cascades and falls that make this trail a favorite of forest visitors.
There are many, many trails that run through this forest and most are unmarked so without a map it can get extremely confusing. In fact, lack of signage would be my biggest complaint about the trails here. After heading back down to the main parking lot, I crossed Lulu Brook and then crossed the large field that leads to a wide trail heading into the woods. Not sure what trail this is but it lead to a large comfort station area with restrooms that looks fairly new.
I soon came out at the Berry Pond Circuit Road and crossed it to a blue blazed trail that appeared to be the Parker Brook Trail according to my map. The rushing water confirmed that I was indeed at the Parker Brook footbridge but there were several trails that entered the woods once I crossed. I stayed on the trail that seemed to follow the brook. Parker Brook is a beautiful mountain stream that flows down from Tilden Swamp and eventually meets up with Lulu Brook before emptying into Onota Lake.
Kaylah and I did a loop up Lulu Brook Trail and back down Honwee Loop Trail as the sun was setting. There was a blend of dry and very muddy sections on this trail as well. By the time we got back to parking lot it was nearly 5pm and almost completely dark.
Walked a couple of miles in the 40 degree weather and had very wet boots by the end of the day, but felt great getting out into the woods.
