Clockwise, via Norumbega Yurts & Cidery
Just beyond the parking area for Big Falls Preserve, the trail heads left at the Norumbega Trail sign. It follows along Talking Brook, and passes the Norumbega yurts and the Norumbega Cidery on the left. The trail then crosses a bridge over the stream to the chapel area and continues through a mature pine and mixed woods forest to Upper Woodman Road. At this location the trail connects with the Big Falls Preserve. Or, a right on the discontinued Woodman Road leads back to the parking area.

Woodman Road to the north leads to the trailhead for Big Falls Preserve. Just beyond the Big Falls Preserve trailhead, the Norumbega Cidery Trail continues to the left. This trail connects back to the Norumbega Chapel area and passes the Norumbega Cidery and Norumbega yurts. The loop ends back at the parking area for Big Falls Preserve.
