Marr’s Ridge Trail, Whitefield


  • Preserve Size: Not sure (on private land)
  • Trail Mileage: ~2.6-mile walk
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy (hill at the beginning)
  • Sights: view, sundial

This trail kicks off with a short, quick uphill to an interesting granite sundial and a view of distant hills (in Camden). Then you head off for a loop through the forest. The trail is well-blazed, and the footpath interlaces with old tracks/roads. When I visited in September 2017, there was an intricate system of tubes connecting a number of trees in a patch of the woods close to the start of the trail for maple syrup!

Directions: The trailhead is on the west side of (South) Hunts Meadow Road, between Cooper Road and Route 126. It’s less than a mile from Cooper Road, and approximately 1.6 miles from Route 126.

  1. FYI: Those “watering tubes” you speak of are actually collection tubes for sap used in the process of making maple syrup.

  2. Ah yes, since taking this walk, I managed to figure it out! Doh. After growing up in suburbia, I still have a lot to learn. Thank you for your note.

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