Description

This walk winds through the woods behind the Unitarian Universalist Church on Route 5. It is not overly difficult and departs from the church’s backyard. Maps and a guestbook are available seasonally at the trailhead, and there are several places to sit and rest along the trail. Inspirational quotes from literature and multiple faiths hang along the trail and the many different plant species are labeled with wooden markers. The trail first crosses a long wheelchair-accessible boardwalk and then climbs up for a bit. The trail is very narrow and the bugs can be numerous at times. Also, keep an eye out for poison ivy.

Several wet area crossings located beyond the boardwalk are spanned with boards - if moss covered or wet please watch your footing.

Enjoy the walk and the inspiration that nature can give!
