All Persons Trail

Completed in May 2014, this half-mile trail loop follows a wide, gently sloping path with a smooth, packed surface. The trail construction complies with ADA guidelines for accessibility and is designed to accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices. This trail beckons all visitors to explore Habitat's special places.

The trail begins at Habitat's parking area, goes by the community gardens and photo-voltaic solar array, winds through the pine forest, meadow, and birch woods, and reaches Turtle Pond.

This All Persons Trail project was developed cooperatively between Mass Audubon and the Recreational Trails Program.
