Description

An area totaling nearly 200 acres, the Salem Town Forest offers year round recreation. The parking lot is large and a kiosk at the entrance has a detailed map with a brief history of the area. There about 5 miles of trail within the forest, and an additional 5 miles on neighboring private property. Those trails can be accessed from the end of Trail A (boundary not marked). The area has some steep hills with a few minor rocky, technical sections. Trail A is the best for beginners, offering a flat ride past the wetlands. Trail H is a steeper, but fun, intermediate level trail.

 

Directions:

56 Shadow Lake Road
Route 93 Exit 3. East on Route 111. Cross Route 28 and continue 0.7 miles.  Park in lot on the right, after the State highway maintenance area.
