Trail shared by Rebecca Niles

Beautiful pine forest with noise from 495, followed by a short run to a lake, requiring moderate exertion.

Runner Notes

This is a nice flat trail until you reach the stairs on the Conant Park Section.

South of King Street, the initial flat part (0.4 miles) is thick (6") brush. The uphill portion of this trail (0.2 miles) is steep and very treacherous with roots and stones.

Description

Park on White Street and enter Conant Park at a rock with the park name on it. Follow the tag on the post (bluebird with three pine trees) towards Long Lake. A couple points are unclear, but continue on the most obvious path until you each the ball field.

At that point, continue up the stairs to the town offices and then right along King Street (busy) until you reach the Congregational Church of Littleton. There is a crosswalk to the next mile of the Two Brothers Trail to Long Lake which will make this run 1.8 miles each way.

Wear your head phones to miss the drone from 495 and feel free to run as the trail is flat and clear.

Continuing on, the path is wide and flat mowed grass for first 0.4 miles. It then enters Prouty Woods and is a singletrack, filled with fern and moss (July). From 0.5-0.7 miles, the trail is steep, rocky, and root-filled terrain. Up until this point, the path is well-marked with wood posts pointing the way to Long Lake. It is all downhill from there, literally and figuratively.

All paths lead to Long Lake unless marked otherwise because they go to a road. The main trail is marked with yellow dots and a square with three evergreens and a bluebird. At the edge of the lake, one can run left or right along the lake. The path to the right will lead to a place that usually has a boat sitting there that I have heard one can use.

Flora & Fauna

Majestically tall pines, ferns, and moss. Also snakes, frogs, and birds.
