From the parking lot, head east (left when facing the woods), passing the Visitor Center to the left. You are following the red-on-white-blazed Pine Meadow Trail, which parallels Stony Brook, on the left. The trail follows a wide woods road, with a detour onto a footpath to the right to avoid a wet and rocky section of the road. After following this wide route for 0.4 mile, you’ll come to fork...

March 15 2017. A very dynamic hike with lots of scenery changes. I clocked it at 7 miles with my GPS but that included a few short off-trail excursions. A great hike in springtime with lots of water running down the Stony Brook.

Excellent Hike
Did this hike today.  Can I say it is an amazing hike.  I agree that this should be rated easy to moderate as the only tough part is the climb up Diamond Mountain and the rocky terrain.   Other than that this hike is beautiful.  Lots of following water, scenery changes and plenty of places along the way to enjoy a Zen moment.   I will defintely be hiking this loop again.

More of an Easy to Moderate Hike
Did this hike on Sunday (3/6/16).  Other than the short steep ascent up to Diamond Mountain, the rest of the hike was rather easy wth lots of rock gardens to maneuver through.  Should be added to Easy to Moderate category instead of Moderate hike category.   Also, if you miss the turn off to the left after the footbridge above Cascade of Slid and continue on the Hillburn-Torne-Sebago Trail straight, you can get back on to the hike further by following the H-T-S Trail straight to the next footbridge about a mile further (where it hooks up with the Kakiat Trail and the Seven Hills Trail coming from the left (the other side of the brook).  Cross the footbridge and then get back on the red-on-white blazed Pine Meadow Trail going to the right after you cross bridge.
