Swift River Trail, Rumford


  • Preserve Size: 40 acres?
  • Trail Mileage: .5 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Swift River, athletic fields, woods, wheelchair-friendly trail

This half-mile trail is paved and wheelchair accessible. It meanders along the shallow Swift River, edging the municipal park, Hosmer Field Park. It is a pleasant place; every town should have one of these, if they can!

Directions: Take Hancock Street to Strafford Avenue. Continue to the athletic fields. There is parking all along Hosmer Lane, which runs along the fields, or you can access a second parking area past the football field and near, or rather behind, the tennis courts. This trailhead is located next to a large picnic area with several tables.

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