“A complete loop tour of the old Maudslay Estate now turned State Park along the Merrimack River.”— Zander Göpfert
For visitors who are short on time or to accommodate varying abilities, heading to the formal gardens to explore the historic sites and landscapes can be a nice out-and-back run option.
Educational programs are put on in the summer months.
At the end of the Well Walk, turn right (north) onto the Main Road as it descends around Tower Hill parallel to the Merrimack River Trail. After just under one mile, turn left (northwest) onto Mile Circle, which joins the Merrimack River Trail just off the Merrimack River shoreline.
After 1.6 miles, a quick uphill will mark the half-way mark near the clearing around Moulton's Hill. A few hundred yards further, look for Line Road heading right (east) to begin the return along the boundary with Arrowhead Farm.
This run stays against the property boundary, linking with Pine Trail back toward the main parking area, but there are a number of trails that cut across this corner of the park. Check out the DCR map or use the Trail Run Project mobile app to find your own way through.
