Walk with the sound of water rippling along your way or make your way to see the beautiful Crystal Lake.
Try the whole trail, just the loop, or out and back to the lake.
This trail was lovingly created in honor of Colette Drape, a young woman who loved nature, but passed away at a young age. You can read more about the trail’s history and description here.
Getting There and Parking
There are two trailheads, one off Boy’s Camp Road and the other on Grafton Pond Rd. in Enfield, NH.
This is the signage on Grafton Pond Road. There is a small parking area here.
There’s a parking area pull off on Boy’s Camp Road where the car is.
On Boy’s Camp Road the trail heads start at this bridge. The big rocks on either side show where the trail heads start. One goes down to the lake and the other side follows the Bickell Brook to the loop. The trails is about 2 miles one way.
On the Trail
We followed the trail along Bickell Brook. I loved all the water and natural features on this trail. It’s so incredibly peaceful!
My son loved the rocks and stone wall.
This is the trail in the opposite direction, towards the lake. This summer in 2019 I took the trail down to the lake. It took us about an hour to get to the lake and back (with lots of stops for our toddler to pick up acorns and touch the water -so we walked sllloooww).
Have a picnic at the little spot at the lake. There’s even a firepit and a rope swing.
This is a wonderful trail you should definitely try this summer!
