Wells Recreation Department Trails, Wells


  • Preserve Size: 70 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.2 mile in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Merriland River

At this plentiful town park (it has a playground, ball fields, an ice skating rink, snack stand, etc.), you can take a pleasant one-mile stroll through the woods and by the pretty Merriland River. There are three blazed loops: yellow, red, and blue. I recommend walking the yellow trail to the red trail. At a couple of points, it looked like there were little trails to pretty spots along the river.

Directions: The trail starts from the side of the Wells Recreation Department’s parking lot. There is a kiosk. The address for the department is 412 Branch Road. 


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