Brainard Road is a quiet, rural, dead street with a relatively new sign and parking lot, located on the left(north) side of the road.
The trail turns and climbs up to the top of a tiny knoll, with an open canopy.
Eventually, the loop trail drops down to a long ago extension of Brainard Road, which we followed all the way back out the main road.
The last part of the walk is along Brainard Road, passing by several residences on our way back to the parking area. Total mileage is just a touch over 1 mile.
