About the Property

A marked trail leads through hemlock woods and past a beaver marsh to the summit of Mount Wallingford.  The summit offers a nice view to the north. Look for wild blueberries in season. There is a property sign at the entrance on Flanders Memorial Road and enough room to park one or two vehicles.

Please see our Visitor Use Guidelines page for a complete list of rules and regulations for Forest Society reservations. 

Trail Information

Mount Wallingford Trail


Yellow Rectangles

A marked trail leads from the property entrance on Flanders Memorial Road to the top of Mount Wallingford.  This 2.5-mile, moderately strenuous route takes you along old woods roads (now a snowmobile trail) and along a narrow hiking path.  There are some steep sections to reach the summit.
