Guided Historic Hike – Boiler Trail

Length: 4.5 km Duration: 3 hrs Difficulty: 2-moderate. The trail follows the Old Rear Forks road and is well maintained. SANS trail #760 enters approximately 100 m from the beginning of the trail and continues to a 1930’s boiler steamer and beyond. The first 1.5 km of the trail is passable with a vehicle in snow-free seasons. There is space for parking at the intersection of SANS trails #760 & #780. The trail to this point is a gentle grade with an elevation gain of about 200 feet. The next 1.5 km is relatively level with an elevation gain of about 100 feet. There is a small creek at this point with a bridge and guardrail. From this point the steepness of the trail increases with an elevation gain of about 340 feet over the next 1.5 km. Watch for the boiler on the right side of the trail. This portion is most pleasing as it passes through hardwood forest. The trail continues past the boiler and joins up with the SANS highland trails. The forest beyond the boiler is mostly young softwood. There are occasional views of the hillsides and valley. In addition to the historical significance of the boiler, the early portion of the trail skirts and crosses Mill Brook on which once stood a water-powered grist mill.
