Other Information

The Strafford Trail System consists of 15 miles of trails, including the Cobb Forest Loop. Most of the trails are made possible by private land owners who host the sections of the trail passing over their property. Landowners have agreed to allow human powered traffic on their trails which includes foot, snowshoe, skis, and bicycle though the trails are not wheel-friendly or conducive to anything but foot traffic. No motor vehicles please.

The trail system is a resource of the Town of Strafford and is managed by the Strafford Conservation Commission.

Please respect these properties. The generosity of the individual land owners makes this resource available.
