Hiking Trails

ANNOUNCEMENTS


**West End Farm Trail (Maps 26 and 28): A private landowner at the end of District 5 Road will not be renewing the trail agreement which allows for the continuation of the WEFT on old Dimond Road between the southern portion of Rossview Farm and District 5 Road. The trail is currently blocked off. Please respect the landowner's wishes and seek an alternate route.  You can still travel north on the trail from Currier Road, but will need to turn around before you reach District 5 Road. If you would like to travel a through route from Currier Road to Carter Hill Orchard, follow the Orange and Red connector trails (see map 28). You are still able to travel north between District 5 Road and Carter Hill Orchard.  (See updated maps)
 


  

**Morono Park Trails (Map 11) will be closed Monday through Friday from 7 am to 6 pm starting mid-February until further notice for construction associated with sewer main improvements.  For your safety, and the safety of the contractors, please respect the closure and stay off all trails in the park during this time.

  • Please do not disturb the plants and wildlife.
