Dedicated to Linny Levin, this Quest rambles up scenic Great Brook.


This Quest begins at the bottom of North Pleasant Street in New London. Take Exit 12 off I-89 north or south. Take Newport Road east into New London. Remain on this road, which becomes Main Street. After passing the fire station on your left, turn left on North Pleasant Street at a yellow blinking light. Follow North Pleasant Street down the hill to the base, where you will cross a small bridge over a brook. The road becomes Lakeshore Drive at this point. Park in the parking area on your right immediately after the bridge. Your Quest begins here!
