Otter Brook Sanctuary

This trail skirts the outside of a housing development following Otter Brook as it winds through tree plantations, woods, and marshy wetlands.
Trail Activity
0.8 miles, One Way
Dirt/Forest Floor


The trailheads are not marked but leave directly from the pullouts and are easy to find. Once on the trail, blue laminated signs mark the trail as it follows Otter Brook. On the northern end, the trail follows snowmobile trails briefly so users should pay attention to signs to be sure to stay on the correct trail.

This trail, especially the southern end, can be very wet in the spring and generally follows the uneven forest floor. Make sure to be prepared for these conditions.

These trails are not maintained very well. This is more of an outdoor survival training kind of trail, rather than a fun recreational trail. There are many dangerous looking widow makers, and the foot bridges have rotting timbers and exposed nails. Going in through the southern trail head took us through a prickly raspberry patch. The northern trail head was better maintained for snowmobiles. Once off the snowmobile track the path was difficult to follow. Did I mention all the poison ivy?
