Good trail saw geese & bluejays nice to walk by the water. Some trails aren’t clearly marked but overall good easy trail. Parking is difficult & small area but you can park up on side of road.

This is a beautiful straight pathed walk to an open lake with a little bench of sitting. Extremely peaceful during the sunrise hour. Great for a troll by yourself or dog

Easy walk along the shore with a mostly wide and clear path. We saw ducks, two small rat snakes, snails, chipmunks, and turtles sunning themselves on lily pads and logs in the water.

A good easy rail trail. Beware that it can get very muddy after a lot of rain

Main trail is a straight shot, well kept. We parked on Haggetts Pond Road and did the trail “backwards”. Lots of little off shoots with great views of the pond that all lead back to the main trail. Most dogs off leash. Parking lot fills quick.

Great trail. I've been walking it since I was a young child with my father and not to mention it's a great place to relax and catch some fish as well! There are some muddy areas and lots of bugs but if you're into nature, this is your ideal beginner trail.

this is honestly one of my favorite trails in Andover. the trail i easy and flat most of the way. you can go either straight through from haggots pond road to highplain road or you can venture off into little side trials that link back to the main trial. you wont need to worry about getting lost and the trail is pretty well populated most days. I recommend bringing your dog ( alot of people let their dogs off leash here even though its illegal just so you know)

Really good trail!! I just moved to the area a few months ago and have been looking for a place to walk. This trail mostly goes right alongside the water so it’s pretty and peaceful. There are smaller trails off of the main trail if you want to explore a bit. It’s great!
