Ideal for beginners, Powder Mill Ledges offer a fairly short trail for families with young children and beginners to hike. The trail is approximately four miles long and will keep beginners interested by the different habitats encountered on the trail. The scene is very relaxing and peaceful, overlapping a brook and a little pond. I feel that the trail is fairly challenging for beginners/young children so that they won’t get bored and yet not so hard that they’ll be discouraged. There is also a gift shop for young children to buy souvenirs of their first hike!
