The Heath Property contains six interlaced trails that are marked in different colors with flagging tape or painted blazes. The trails offer scenic woodland hikes uninterrupted by roads. Maps are posted at all trail intersections.
The Yellow Trail begins at the trailhead on Bogie Place and leads to and along Eastman Brook, where one can enjoy beautiful vistas of the stream and marshland. Beaver have been at work here, and several of their dams can be seen. This level trail meanders through a white pine stand, finally climbing to its termination with the Red Trail. The Red Trail returns through the middle of the forest, connecting at different points with the Pink, Orange, Green and Blue Trails.
The Green and Blue Trails with moderate elevation change provide short cuts between the Red and Yellow trails systems. The Orange Trail offers an alternative to the south of the Yellow Trail that still returns to the Red/Yellow intersection. The Pink Trail, with an alternate trailhead at Troon Drive, is a fairly level path that makes a loop over the upper part of the forest through habitat rich with ruffed grouse.
In winter, the trails are ungroomed and available for snowshoeing without a trail pass; however, a free parking pass is required to park at Bogie Place.
