How to Get There

Beautiful And Easy Hike

Pratt's Brook Conservation area was a quick and easy hike. My fiancé and I went in early September and trees covered the entire trail to make a shaded and beautiful walk. The brook was dried out unfortunately. I recommend the hike for a quick afternoon. There is also a cute farm nearby for locally grown produce.
