You begin hike by crossing the historic comstock bridge. You follow a trail that leads you along the river where you might run into some fisherman. The trail then takes you up hill out of the river valley. It would be considered an easy uphill, nothing that steep. The trails will lead you through some new england woods. You can take a the blue trail which will lead you to Day Pond state park. Not sure what the total mileage is but it is under 5 miles. from the point you park your car unitl you return. Have a good hike. Salmon river offers good trout fishing as well for any of you anglers out there. There is a fly fishing only zone marked by signs.
