Located off of Route 6 in Farmington are two little trails, perfect for families to begin learning about hiking, or for an easy trail run, snowshoeing or a just for going on a stroll in the woods.
The first trail, the Blue Trail, is a loop of 1.5 miles on a fairly level path with a hilly section or two. You first enter the trail by old animal cages, that was once a wildlife refuge, but abandoned in 1960s. The path is easy to follow and perfect for a family with young children.
Once you have completed this hike, head down the road to the White Trail and complete the 2.5 miles on those trails. This is located at a decommissioned DEP site. Though this trail is longer, it is a bit less hilly and perfect for trail running or snowshoeing.
If you only a short amount of time and in need of the forest, this is the perfect place to go.
