Goodwin Forest, Eliot

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 74 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.3 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Shorey Brook

As of the spring of 2021, you can do a 1.3-mile or so walk in the 74-acre forest through the woods to Shorey’s Brook. The Great Works Regional Land Trust says it has plans to build a bridge over the stream to add more trails on the other side. The trail begins down a straight-ish 0.4-mile established forested track, or “Old Johnson Lane,” to a short ~0.5-mile loop. This part is wide and easy. The loop is a little less easy, but brings you to the marshy stream and the interesting plant life there.

Directions: The address is 870 Goodwin Road, or Route 101, in Eliot. The parking lot probably is large enough for four cars.
