Trailhead

From Route 12A in Plainfield, NH, head north towards West Lebanon. After passing the Plainfield Cemetery, turn right onto Stage Road. Pass by the house on the corner to reach a open field. A small parking area is located on the far end of the field next to Stage Road.

Description

This 19.5 acre park off Stage Road was purchased by the Town of Plainfield in 1988 and features playing fields, a baseball diamond, and a quaint, gently sloping trail. The Nature Trail follows the steep upper bank of Blow-Me-Down Brook where a granite bench honoring Dana Meadows's conservation advocacy is located. The trail loops back form the elevated stream bank to wander through a tall forest of mixed hardwoods, returning to the back of the baseball diamond where picnic tables are located.

Other Information

A portable restroom is available by the baseball diamond during warm months.

Tried to bike this trail in early July of 2015 and found it completely overgrown and unrideable.
