Happy Farm Trail, Whitefield


  • Preserve Size: Not sure, private property
  • Trail Mileage: ~2-mile walk
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Sheepscot River, fields

This is a happy-inducing trail. It starts behind the recycling center and skirts a ball field before turning a sharp right into some beautiful fields. Eventually the path enters a forest and, in a short while, comes out along the banks of the pretty Sheepscot River. The loop is roughly two miles, and there are two benches set up at spots alongside the river. The trail was very well cared for when I visited in September 2017 — well blazed and easy to follow.

Directions: From Route 126, turn onto Townhouse Road in Whitefield. The recycling center is just about 900 feet beyond, on your right, down Balltown Lane. I just parked off to the left side of the lot. The trailhead kiosk will be a bit beyond the bins.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
