  Trail Description

The Molly Charles Trail is relatively flat.  Highlights include old growth pines, stone walls, a large erratic left by glacial action, glimpses of King Hill Brook, and the remains of an old well and water tank.  The interpretive guide found in the mail box near the trail head is informative and enhances the enjoyment of this trail. The Molly-Charles Trail consists of a main loop trail and two side trails in the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust (ASLPT) William R. Cordingley Preserve. The trail head is on Soo Nipi Road. Parking is along the road (P). The main trail passes through quiet woods. The short side trails each lead to a brook that flows through an extensive hemlock grove within the preserve. The main trail is 0.3 miles in length and, when combined with the side trails, provides a walk of less than a half mile.
