Pleasant River Walk

Brownville's Pleasant River Walk is a nature walk of nealry three miles connecting the Village and the Junction. Starting at the Playground in the Village or a Davis Recreational Field by the Green Bridge in Junction, the River Walk is a three to four foot wide trail, through woods and fields, parallel to the Pleasant River. The nature trail is carefully groomed – quite easy to walk, but not so much as to lose the feel of a walk in the deep woods.
