This trail is closed May through mid-August for Peregrine Falcon breeding season. Very close to the house, short hike, and incredible view! , so look for the sign to see if you can take the trail when you go. Directions: Take right from the house to where Churchill Road hits Coit’s Pond Road, turn right. You’ll see Coit’s Pond and a small parking area on your left, keep going. Eventually you the road will swing left and you will see a sign for a driveway on your right. The parking area for the Nichols Ledge trailhead will be about thirty yards on your left. The trailhead starts at the parking lot. The trail itself is a quick hike. As with most trails some might find it difficult but if you are used to hiking at all it’s a quick (ten – fifteen minute) hike to the vantage point over looking Nichols Pond. The view from the ledge is incredible and probably more so in the autumn or spring when the forests explode with green.
