Hiking/walking, biking, horse back riding, snowshoeing, x country skiing. Easy walking, good for children and strollers.

We chose the Rte 13 end.

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,

Note stroller, wheelchair bumpers.
This sharp corner surprised a biker I think.
These trails are easy walking.
Access to Mary’s trail.
Turn off to Mary’s headed West.
A little leftover history near Main St.

The trail continues across Main Street and travels behind some beautiful chunks of farms and private property.

Still standing on Main since the 1700’s.
Crossing Main the trail continues. Delightful trip behind lovely farms and woods.

There are more memories of rail along this stretch.

Pause to appreciate the sculptures.

And the lovely wetlands.

One never knows where an Adirondack might appear.

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.

Must always have trees.

Thank you Piscataqua Land Conservancy. Follow us to get updates when we add more of their trails.
