Description
Waypoints (0)

Nice loop trail through hardwood forest. Mostly flat with some nice hills to get your pulse rate up a bit. First segments track along hwy 495 and the road noise can be a bit unappealing, but it abates as you progress along. This is town of Andover conservation land (AVIS?). There's a parking lot with with small info kiosk.

The trail is easy to follow and in fair condition. The non stop buzz of traffic from nearby Rte 495 was not pleasant.

Lots of trails to explore here if you use both reservations (Bald Hill & Rafton). Fun time trying to stay dry on one section of Rafton. Highway noise from 495 & 93 are main reasons for not giving more stars. Great trail system for its neighbors tho.

Clear trails and markers, very muddy in spots. A nice picnic spot next to a creek

this trail is fairly empty most of the time I hike it. it starts of with a steep down hill slope you reach the bottom of the slope then you ca. choose to go left or right and you will eventually loop back. that being said be prepared to finish your hike walking up hill. theres a picnic table on trail and I also recommend bringing bugspray.
