Hiking

Reach Otter Brook at 4.0 miles down the trail, but there is no bridge. Be careful fording the stream, which has deep spots and a noticeable current. The entire trail is 10 miles long. It follows the boundary between the Little Moose Mountain Wilderness and the West Canada Lake Wilderness, from Otter Brook Road to Little Moose Lake.

At mile 6.3 the trail connects to the Lost Pond Trail, which leads to the West Canada Lake Wilderness. At Little Moose Lake the end of the Otter Brook Trail connects to the Wilson Ridge Trail. Continue on this trail all the way to Little Moose Lake.
