  Trail Description

A self guided trail map with notes is available here and at the Route 11 entrance.  Winter travel by snowshoes or cross country skis is popular. The trails in the Esther Currier Wildlife Management Area at Low Plain may be accessed from the parking area (P) off Route 11 or from a parking area (P) on Mountain Road.  The main trail is named the Davis Path. It is a gated gravel road that runs between Route 11 and Mountain Road. Side trails go to an overlook and to observation blinds along the edge of an active Beaver Pond. A quaking bog may be viewed from a boardwalk on the trail to the Marsh Point blind (not passable at high water). A high water detour is also available for the Davis Path. A geological exhibit (boulder collection) and a salamander pool are visible from the Davis Path. The Davis Path is 1.1 miles in length (one way). A half mile loop trail to Shepard Spring is also shown across Mountain Road from the Davis Path. Parking is available along Mountain Road. The trail is only marked for a clockwise trip around the loop.  Note that the Conservation Commission has also developed a a Forestry Management Cover Map and Forestry Plan for the Low Plains area.
