Howe Trail

A .7 mile Low Stress walking trail with Hard grades

BRP-Howe Trail
IMG_5967.JPEG

This is a mowed, open meadow trail heading east and gently downhill from the parking area to approach the pond pictured above (which is technically in an area closed to the public).

Universal Access (UA): The entire loop exceeds UA Standards with respect to Running Grades and Cross-Grades. One .25 mile section to the westernmost point overlooking the pond (.5 miles round trip) heading clockwise from the parking lot would meet UA standards except for a 250' section of 5-8.33% grades. 

Effort: This .7 mile walking trail has a Flat Equivalent Length of .8 miles. Maximum Grades are rated as Hard. because of a 70' section of 12.5-20% grades. Depending on the direction, the longest continuous grades are as follows: a 40-90' section with at least easy grades, a 10-90' section with at least easy to moderate grades, a 10-70' section with at least moderate grades, and a 10' section with difficult grades. Longer and more steep uphill sections are found going clockwise. Click the map below for more detailed information. 

Stress: This is rated overall as Low Stress. Greatest stressors include a section on the northern half with 5-10% cross-grades (which could be partially avoided by walking on the road). ​As a mowed meadow trail with no obvious drainage problems, this provides a wide, firm, and relatively even walking surface.

 

Other features: This is a quiet trail.  There is a bench near the parking lot and another in the area marked on the map as currently closed to the public.

Connections: You can continue on to the Greene Trail to add about .5 miles to your total walk
