Visit Hamilton Town Hall and ask for the Discover Hamilton Trail Map. It shows a ten-mile circuit of trails starting at the Town Hall and visiting such fascinating Hamilton natural areas as the Trustees of Reservations Appleton Farms Grass Rides, Bradley Palmer State Park, and the Essex County Greenbelt Willowdale Reservation. A two-town trail map of Hamilton and Wenham includes this trail and much more.
And this is only part of what's available! If you'd like to do some trailwalking and help us extend the maps, please contact the Commission.
Chebacco Woods has another fine set of trails, as does the Trustees of Reservations Appleton Farms Grass Rides property.
Visit the Bradley Palmer State Park website for a downloadable trails map of this superb park in Hamilton and Topsfield.
The Discover Hamilton Trail is part of a much larger system, the Bay Circuit Trail and Greenway. See their website for information and maps.
Essex County Trails Association is a very active and effective local trails-user assocation with emphasis on horse riding but important for all interested in local trails. Join in their invaluable trail-maintenance activities.
Essex County Velo, a mountain biking organization, also organizes volunteer trail-maintenance work in the area.
