The Sam Ristich trail rambles through mature forests, down a deep and peaceful ravine, and along an old rail bed passing ponds, streams, and the conserved woodlands of North Yarmouth. Excellent for walking, birdwatching, trail running, and snowshoeing.

This is a nice out and back trail with a loop in the middle. Several wet areas exist with boardwalks crossing the majority of them. Not a problem in January when I took this walk. Microspikes were needed as the ground conditions were icy. A lot of trees and limbs down from the recent ice storm.
