Elinor’s Woods

Well wooded, wetland edge, among big trees, thorny bushes adjacent to regrown cranberry bogs make this 4.86-acre parcel a haven for many birds. Located on that part of the land where the salt water meets the fresh, the trails meandering under dark, wooded canopy are a quiet place to walk and think. Walking is easy, signs are located on trees, and several benches and wooden bridges offer places to sit and gaze.

Elinor's Woods was donated by Robert A. Sprague in memory of his late wife. The trail system was designed and laid out by Boy Scout Neil Irving in 1999.
