Stop 9: Lovers Leap and Glen

Directions to Stop 9 from the House in the Woods: Continue along the path and over the wooden bridge. Please be careful as you walk through this area. There is a steep cliff that drops to the brook below.

View about 1900 of one of several bridges built over the glen by Greeley’s daughter Gabrielle.

Take a moment to take in the beauty of the brook and glen. Remember, Mary Greeley had asked Horace to find a place that contained “a cascade or brawling brook.” Tertia Brook satisfied that requirement handsomely, and it remains the most prominent feature of Greeley Woods.
