Nature walk on the Little River Trail System

Nature walk on the Little River Trail System with a trail guide. This walk is family friendly and for children over 6 with an adult, but no pets. This walk is on easy terrain involving meadows, forests, vernal pools and wetlands.

Participants should meet at the end of Crow Lane (Colby Farm Lane) at the Marlene Schroeder trailhead. (Storey Avenue, right on Low Street, right on Colby Farm Lane, 1/3 mile down on right).

These walks are among more than 100 free events during the Essex National Heritage Trails and Sails weekends.

The trail is maintained to highlight the importance of the Little River, a major tributary of the Parker River. The river is about 19 miles long from its headwaters in Boxford to its outlet at Plum Island Sound in Newbury. It covers approximately 82 square miles in Essex County.
