Summer Street Park, Lisbon


  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: 1.2 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Little River, woods, wastewater treatment facilty

This is a little get-away, with some of the trail following the fairly open banks of the Little River. The park does abut the town’s wastewater treatment plant, so it is sometimes possible to smell the plant. 

The trails are not blazed or marked, but they are easy to see. You can do a loop that’s a little under a mile. There are no signs marking the boundaries of the preserve. But the path seems to extend beyond the park’s boundaries along the river in both directions. Additionally, a local woman said she thought there might be an unofficial path on the other side of the river as well.

From the street, the path heads downhill to the river, crossing the power lines. There is a map at the trailhead on Summer Street.

Directions: From Route 196, turn onto Summer Street. A kiosk will be on the right about .4 miles down. Park at the side of the road.


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