Trail Description:

The trail, part of the Appalachian/Long Trail system, is identified by white trail blazes.  This trail follows a

rocky course through a mixed northern hardwood forest.  At the east end of the parking area, opposite the entrance, follow the trail along the road for about 50 feet then take a sharp left turn which leads over a narrow bridge. From this point the trail follows Bromley Brook.  At 0.9 mile the trail crosses over Corridor

7, a major snowmobile route.  After 1.6 miles, the trail makes a couple of sharp turns and becomes steeper. At 2.3 miles, there is a spur trail leading to the Bromley Shelter and tenting area.  As the trail nears the summit, it opens onto Bromley Mountains Run Around” ski trail.   Follow this to the top where you will see an AT/LT sign, Summit Ski Patrol Station, and an observation deck.  From the summit there are excellent views in all directions.  In particular, Stratton Mountain is to the south and Mount Equinox is to the west.  Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
