You can't get lost. Easy trail that follows the Exeter river. From end of Lary Lane to Gilman Park. Cross bridge to PEA property and follow into town and falls where Exeter River flows into Sqamscott tidal river. Grab lunch and an ice cream. Life is good!

Got lost very poorly marked. However I will try again see if I can find the actual trail. My dog loved it. Very buggy!

Great trail if your just looking for a quite stroll with not to many great views . The only views are the exeter river and local woods. I would recommend just because I love walking and being outdoors . (Bring bug spray )

Ok trail. Not a great experience because of abundance of attacking deer flies and mosquitoes the entire trek. More than half the “trail” is on a paved road community, but this was known going in. Not well marked and went way off track. Should’ve had my gps going. Ended up on main road (busy auto traffic) and backtracked about 1/2 mile. This time of year here in New England it’s known when it’s hot and humid there will be annoying biting insects. Would not go back here in the middle of summer. Early spring or fall would be a better non-bug experience. Nice forested area along river.

Never found the loop or waterfall. Followed the river until we ended at private property.

Ton of tree roots, hard to ride and very poorly marked. A couple of times I wasn't sure where to go and it became annoying. Won't do it again
