HikingGreat!

Easy walk, great views of massive beaver pond that you can't see from the road. Parking available at the Rte 11 trailhead; not much at the Mountain Road end. Lots of good interpretive info in the trail guide in the box at the Rt 11 end, if they keep restocking it. It was down to one when we left. That had been our copy! We did the trail in two trips, one from each end, meeting in the middle.

Great hike for beginners and those looking for an easy trek through the woods. A visit to the blinds is a must. we saw many ducks and a great blue heron on our visit.

A great hike, starts out very flat and easy to walk, we took the trails off to the observation blinds and that was the highlight for sure. Lots of wildlife, fun terrain, bogs and swampy areas to explore, my 7 year old loved it. A few downed trees made it a little difficult for some. The off shoot to the blinds took longer than we thought so we had to head back before making it all the way to the end of the trail. Don’t forget the big repellent!

Easy hike, a little buggy, but spotting the Moose at the swamp outweighed all the mosquitoes!! Also spotted the rare white lady’s slipper. A good day on the trail.

First to Review

Esther Currier trail is a great trail for a family or a single/couple who wants to get a nice walk on a busy day. Only 2.2 miles out and back with the scenery, flora and fauna of a 10-mile hike. Beaver ponds galore. Cranes, hawks, eagles, beavers, and foxes are plentiful. Unfortunately, so are mosquitoes given the marsh and associated wetlands the trail skirts. There is a wooden viewpoint right on the water that serves to see numerous birds and animals. Perfect for training children on the variety of life in a marsh...
