Salem Town Forest

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.

Please stay on the marked trails and do not create new trails.
