Farm Brook Trails offers 5.4 miles of looping wooded paths with international vistas and quiet solitude. There are rest benches along the trails including an Adirondack shelter with picnic tables, an information kiosk, and a fireplace for cooking in winter. Some of the old farm tools are displayed here along with a history of the old dairy farm.
The Yellow Trail from the trailhead will bring you to a small bridge after which one may choose to take a left onto the Rock Pile Trail or a right onto the Felix Trail or stay on the Yellow Trail. Any of these brings you to the Adirondack Shelter which is the start of the upper trails in the system. The trails are designed with crossover connector trails so a person is able to return back at any time for a shorter loop hike. The trail intersections have location maps and other information in the winter. All trails may be used in the summer but signage is reduced beyond the Red Trail shelter although they are flagged and are not difficult to follow.
