Hearn Swamp and Middle Kilns Brook

Hearn Swamp parallels Forestdale Road to the north and can be seen well from the road. Most of the approaches will require off-trail navigation. While Hearn Swamp is very close to the road a map and compass and/or GPS might not be required but it can‘t hurt. The fishing here is pretty good but the trout are not overly big.
