Travel on Route 5 to a pullout just north of Wilder Village. There is a sign on the side of the parking lot marking it as Maanawaka Conservation Area. Park in front of the gate on the pullout at Dothan Brook.
Please be careful not to block the gate.


A nice trail that leads down to an area on the bank of the Connecticut River backwater. This trail is also rolling with more climbs on the way back.
