Please note that Seymour Lake is a watershed reservoir and is closed to the public. A gazebo, picnic area, and lookout can be found close to the lake at the end of this trail. From here, both the lake and mountain ranges behind can be viewed clearly from a distance. This route follows a smooth paved road and is used heavily mostly by bikes. It is very popular with families with kids. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least ten feet wide. Only the first 0.7 miles is considered gentle enough (5% or less) to be recommended for wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers. The area where the grade begins to increase has been marked on the map with a waypoint.Show more

Set along the eastern boundary of the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, this multi-trail loop offers a unique adventure very well suited to families and people of all ages and abilities. A total of six trails make up this hike and with exception to the Mystery Creek trail, all are smooth gravel walking paths with easy rolling changes in elevation. Paths like these are commonplace but what sets this hike apart is the dense forest tightly surrounding the trails. It is exceptionally green with a beautiful mix of lichens and old growth trees. Mystery Creek also has several nice viewpoints and small cascades that help make this hike almost the perfect nature trip.  These trails do also allow mountain bikes and as this area is located next to the popular Mountain Forest bike park, it is common to share the trails with cyclists who are passing through. This should be no cause for concern as the paths are wide and there seems to be a respectful understanding from the riders that these trails are primarily for hiking. For the Mystery Creek trail, bikes are forbidden and this is also the only section of trail with a noticeable incline. If uphill travel is preferred for this section, a clockwise direction for the hike will be the correct choice.  Parking for this hike is conveniently located at a small lot right at the trailhead. Unrestricted street parking is also available all along Hyannis Drive making it almost certain that an empty space can be found at any time.Show more

With a wide variety of viewpoints and historical attractions, this hike is very well suited for nature trips or a family adventure. The trails along the way are smooth, stroller friendly walking paths that would be comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.  The Hyannis and Bridle trails that start the hike are exceptionally green and located in an excellent example of an old growth forest. Massive stumps from logging over a century ago are also scattered throughout. The wide Fisherman's trail, which was once a logging road, comes next and it leads up to the Seymour River Suspension Bridge. This new bridge was built in 2018 to replace the last of the two historic Twin Bridges, which was badly damaged by flooding and removed in 2015. A short distance later, a pass through cave that was once used for a water pipeline is visible on the left side of the trail. Although dark and usually wet, it is possible to carefully walk through the long cave.  The last section of the hike turns sharply right off Fisherman's and it is called the Elbow trail. After entering this narrow trail, an ancient brick fireplace remains just off trail on the left from a house that once stood in this place. The trail ends with two picnic tables at the Seymour River Lookout. Here you will find many great viewpoints of the river along with a small sandy beach. Fishing is also a common activity from the rocks close to this beach.   Except for the Elbow trail, mountain bikes are also allowed along this hike and they will often pass by on the wide paths. This should not be a concern as there does seem to be a respectful understanding from the cyclists that these trails are primarily for hiking.  For parking, a small lot is located right at the trailhead. Unrestricted street parking is also permitted all along Hyannis Drive making it almost certain that an empty space can be found at any time. Show more

The Fisherman's Trail is wide trail, shared between hikers and mountain bikers. Park and start toward the east side of the lot, looking for a trail that heads into the trees. You will quickly come to a left turn at the sign for the Homestead Trail, which winds downhill. At the end of that trail, go left and pass the wooden gates. You will head up along the Seymour River on the Fisherman's Trail.Show more
