Trues Ledges

Other Link More about Lebanon Conservation Areas

Features

  1. Swimming
  2. Trails

Description

 
Trues Ledges consists of 0.3 mile of trails and is rated 2, or easy but hazardous. Seemingly nondescript trail descends through woods to the dramatic True's Brook, which drains much of southwest Lebanon. 

Parking

 
Parking is along the south side of True's Brook Road before the first bridge, about 0.8 miles East of 12A. Please do not park on private property.

Highlights 


Rocky gorge (between upstream and downstream parcel boundaries, True's Brook drops some 50 feet in elevation along 700 linear feet of shoreline with three dramatic overlooks); long-popular local swimming hole; varied plants and animals (aquatic, riparian, and upland species share relatively small area). 

History

 
In 1998, local efforts succeeded in City's acquisition of this parcel; now permanently conserved by easement to Upper Valley Land Trust.
