Summary:
I hike this trail every year with my kids. My son has grown up hiking this trail from the time he was 8 years old. Last year we took Parker Ridge trail, which turned out to be a terrible long hike up a steep hill with very little to see. At the top of Brook, you have to scramble a bit over old rock falls, but it's the best way up and down to the pond. Be careful if the rocks are moist, and check the weather before you go. If you get near the top and a storm hits, you won't be able to make it over the last bunch of rocks at the top of the trail. You trek along a watersource, and we always take our hiking filter - the water is cold and great, and it dimishes the amount of weight we have to carry. A bit of Gatoraide powder and a filter weighs much less than the water we would need. Plan on taking leather gloves. We skinned the palms of our hands terribly the first year because you end up balancing on rocks a bunch on the way down. Blueberries grow profusely if you are up at the right time of the year. The pond has a few leeches, but is cold and clear.

Recommended Route:
Brook Trail

Other recommended trails in the same area:
NEVER NEVER NEVER take Chimney trail. It is on several guide books, but it is officially closed and dangerous!!! Angel Falls is near by and really worth the day trip. We use this as a photo-op spot every year.
