Esther O'Brien Nature Trail
Sketch of Esther O'Brien Nature Trail
Description: This moderately difficult hiking and exercise trail winds through the hilly, forested terrain behind Lunt and Plummer-Motz Schools. A 12-stage Vita Exercise Course is located at regular intervals with equipment for stretching and strengthening activities.

In the spring and early summer, look for wildflowers including Lady Slippers. Several rock outcroppings are also evident.
Size: The exercise trail is about 1/2 mile long. Connecting trails can add length and variety.
