Brown Bay Trail
|You do the entire trail to get here or simply take a short cut and start at East End.|
14. Brown Bay Trail
1.6 miles. Time: about 2 hours each way. Difficulty:
2-3. Trailhead: This spur turns off to the east 0.7
miles from the beginning of the Johnny Horn Trail. Seeing even less
traffic than Johnny Horn, this pathway is not maintained.
Brown Bay contains
the ruins of an estate house dating from 1872. Look
for the concrete plaque with the date. Also present are extensive ruins
of a sugar mill from an earlier period.
End to Brown Bay: If your main interest is to see only the
ruins, it's just a 0.8-mile walk to them from the Brown Bay trailhead
at East End. To find the trailhead, drive 1.2 miles
east of Emmaus Moravian Church.
