Hiking/walking, biking, horse back riding, snowshoeing, x country skiing. Easy walking, good for children and strollers.
Limited parking at the other end Oak Hill and Bronson Bridge.
We began our walk by following the rail trail SouthEast. Behind the businesses on Rte. 13.
Recommend taking Mary’s trail as it meanders along the Nissitissit River and is the more scenic. The trail is named after Mary Fessenden. The Brookline historical society, brooklinehistory.org, has compiled some great information and photos. The PLC holds the conservation easement on this property. It is owned by the town of Brookline. Their conservation commission worked very hard on designing Mary’s Trail for accessibility and implementing it with grant funding and many workdays. A huge thank you to them,
The trail continues across Main Street and travels behind some beautiful chunks of farms and private property.
There are more memories of rail along this stretch.
Pause to appreciate the sculptures.
And the lovely wetlands.
There is a side access near the bridge off Stickney Brook Dr.
The trail ends at Bohannon Bridge by the ball park.
We turned around and headed back. A lovely, easy walk on a rainy spring day. Looking forward to checking back in when everything turns green.
Thank you Piscataqua Land Conservancy. Follow us to get updates when we add more of their trails.
