Need to Know

There is a Dunkin' Donuts just out of sight and off the trail on Franklin Street.

Description

Park and start at the lower parking lot, or start a little lower at the Library Dr Trailhead. The singletrack trail is surrounded by trees and full of roots. Along the way, the library has added education and directional signs and some musical instruments for the kids. There are lots of birds and small animals to see, and often deer too. The highest point has a bench for stargazing and overlooking the library.

Flora & Fauna

Deer frequent the park in the mornings. There are lots of birds and squirrels, and turtles too. My kids have spotted fish in the stream.
