      The Great Meadow Conservation Area consists primarily of wooded marsh and features abundant wildlife habitat for fish, birds, and mammals. Humans can enjoy a family-friendly 1.3 mile loop trail with scenic views of meadow and marsh wildlife habitat. The opportunities to mountain bike, hike, bird watch, horseback ride, and enjoy this remarkable section of town, is an important piece in the quality of life we take pride in as a community.

      While the Main Loop Trail is only about 1.3 miles, you can easily ad another two or three miles with all of the secondary trials that branches from it.

      Great Meadow is a great riding area for novice riders or families. The trails are easy and open with no significant obstacles, yet still a lot of fun. Many of the secondary trails are real funky!

      Most of the trails are well maintained, albeit not manicured. A small number of trails are not maintained at all and are seriously overgrown. But they should not worry you because they are all but invisible unless you know where they should be.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
