My family summer camp is not far from there on the Cedar River Road. I have less than fond memories from a long time ago of the old trail traversing a beaver meadow. Sometimes the water could be waist deep. DEC would go in and blow up the beaver dam. The beavers would build it back up. After several years of battle they finally relocated the trail to downstream of the dam. As said above, the current re-route is a big improvement, both in terms of trail quality and also avoiding a long road walk. South of Brown's Brook, the "new" trail comes within about a quarter mile of the top of the cliffs on the backside of Sugarloaf Mountain. It would make a wonderful view if a short spur trail could be constructed to the cliff top.....hey, I can dream!
