Simon Trail

Enjoy a peaceful walk on this forested loop trail or take a snowshoe trek in the winter. 
Trail Activity
1.1 miles, Round Trip
Dirt/Forest Floor


This short woodland trail features an abundance of large pines, ferns, mosses, and mushrooms. Boardwalks along the way help keep feet dry, but there is a small stream crossing that might require a hop in the wetter seasons.

Just beyond the trailhead, a mailbox provides a trail journal, maps, and a lost-and-found. Follow the blue well-blazed trail in either direction when the trail splits, avoiding the woods road that runs through the center of the property. About halfway around the loop, there is a short trail extension that allows hikers to avoid a seasonal pond.

In the winter, this is an excellent trail for a quiet snowshoe or winter tracking excursion.
