Two trails follow the Pickering Creek: the longest, Pickering Trail is an 0.89 mile trail termininating near the Charlestown Mill; and Pickering Dam Trail, 0.53 mi., which terminates at State Route 29. The trails meet at Pickering Dam and Peaks Pike Roads. Parking, some limited, is available at the trail ends and meeting point.
The Pickering Creek is a favorite fly fishing stream. The trails are favored by bird watchers and wildflower seekers. (Look, please don’t touch.) The trails are ‘unimproved’ and can be rugged at times with an occasional downed tree.
The Pickering Dam Trail ends at the ruins of a dam located at State Route 29. The dam once created a large pond used for the harvesting of ice prior to the use of refrigeration devices. Although the dam is no longer viable, the massive stones which defined it can still be seen at the terminus.
During the summer of 2016, Nick Warner and members of Eagle Troop 67 have expanded and enhanced previous work by scouts by extending and raising an earlier version of a bridge across the wetlands on the Pickering Dam Road entrance to the Pickering Trail.
