Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

Encompassing marshland, the trail itself is dry, but is rampant with mosquitoes.

Features Fall Colors

No dogs allowed between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Dogs permitted outside summer hours.

Need to Know

Being that the trail encompasses marshland, there are plenty of gnats, mosquitoes, and other bugs that don't go away.

Description

The first half of the trail is singletrack covering mostly smooth trail. Rocks and roots are present, but not prevalent. There are wet sections that have planks to keep your feet dry.

The trail comes close to Powissett Farm, and provides access to the farm through a connector trail. The connector trail is located at the 90-degree turn in the southwest corner of the trail. It is easily recognized on trail. At the 90-degree turn, the trees open up and give a view of the farm.

Continuing on the Oak Hill Trail, eventually runners come to the power line corridor and quickly cross from treeline to treeline. The trail opens up to a doubletrack section shortly after and runs relatively straight out to Dover Road where it finishes.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: There are wildflowers throughout the trails, including a variety of orchid.
