Brookfield Orchard Beginner Loop

This is an easy nordic tour that is about 3.5 miles around the orchard.  While there are some tougher trails, the general route is to start at the Toll Road towards the left, turn right onto Mac Run at the bottom of the hill. Follow the Old East Brookfield Road, then turn to follow Lincoln Road,   Cross over the road, get back on North Connector, go uphill and then turn onto Oak Run (which is the easiest trail). 

After you cross the road again, you will continue on Oak Run, follow the stone wall, get on Great Woods Trail (which is rated more difficult) and head across the open field (hay U) into the woods.  Take Fruit Loop around the upper orchard, and then get back on the North Connector Trail.  Stay on North Connector through the orchard, turn left onto Mac Run, and make the short ascent to the parking lot.
