Tree of Life Trail, Farmington


  • Preserve Size:
  • Trail Mileage: 1 mile
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, bench

This short, wide, easy 1-mile trail — I think it is okay for wheelchairs and strollers — must be nice for people to walk along after visiting patients. Or perhaps convalescing people can walk it as well? I am not sure I’d go out of my way to hike this, but it is a pleasant stroll — an easy, gentle path through woods.

Directions: Turn into the Franklin Memorial Hospital at the intersection of Routes 133 and 2. I think the easiest place to catch the trail is to continue along the road that circles the hospital campus to the back parking lot. You’ll see the trail and a sign on the left side, if you’re facing away from the hospital buildings. 


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