Kittery Town Forest

We needed to run some errands in Kittery today and my wife tasked me with finding some new local trails for us to explore. I quickly came across the Kittery Town Forest.

 

Giant Red Oak

We followed the blue squiggly trail north and then followed the yellow trail back. The conditions were similar trails we’ve been on recently, necessitating microspikes. The woods were rather open though and there was a lot of bare ground. I commented as we were about halfway in that I would not like to visit the trails come mud season. It looks like there are a lot of wet areas.

 

ROYGBIV

 

I unfortunately wasn’t able to find a map online and the kiosk at the trailhead was empty. Strava Heat Map came through again with some great GPS tracks. It looks like there are plenty of trails to explore north of Lewis Rd as well.
