Brentwood Recreation Center Trail

A small town-owned trail network around Brentwood Recreation Center with playgrounds, fields, and picnic areas nearby.
Trail Activity
1.9 miles, Network
Brentwood (NH)
Packed Earth/Dirt, Grass/Meadow


This trail runs behind the Brentwood Recreation Center and is shared by the archery club. The main entrance is off of the back right-hand corner of the lower rear parking lot of the Rec Center. A small kiosk is at the entrance of the lower parking lot near the backstop/play area.

The main trail consists of two loops that connect to each other. The archery club uses the long straight stretch of trail that starts behind the pavilion and runs straight back, eventually connecting with NH-111A. Try to stay on the two main loops and the edges of the fields to keep the archery trail available to club members and the fields open for sports.

This trail system is relatively flat and easy terrain. Although it is blazed, there are some locations where the trail is not well-defined and care should be taken when navigating these parts. This network connects many of the facilities, fields, and recreation areas with each other, making this network ideal for families.

A trail running under the power lines connects to the Glen Oakes Town Forest in Fremont.

Dogs and horses are allowed on the property but are not allowed on the fields, except for marked route on field edge.

Authorized vehicles allowed by permission only. This property is owned by the Town of Brentwood.


Other Information

These trails are also utilized by the Rec Center's archery club, and signs are posted around the grounds to use trails at your own risk. The archery ranges are well-defined, and people should remain on the trails to avoid any possible accidents.
