Maxwell Farms Trails

Length:2.5 miles of trails

Maxwell Farms Regional Park is basically divided into two distinct areas: the "front country" area containing recreation infrastructure such as playing fields, picnic facilities, playgrounds, etc. in contrast to the "backcountry area" comprised of 2.5 miles of trails across 40 acres of open space. The trails in the section of the park are virtually level offering easy strolls through corridors of mature bay trees and across remnants of historic orchards.
