Located on Beaver Meadow Road, Parcel 5 is a great family friendly trail designed for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, running, and biking a manageable 5k (3.1 mile) distance. There are connectors within the trail to shorten the distance, as well as connectors to substantially lengthen the distance to the Brookemeade trail and the Blue Ribbon trail. This is such a valuable resource just a couple miles from downtown Norwich.

Access Info

Drive 2.5 miles up Beaver Meadow Road and you will see a subtle sign on the right with "5" on it. Head up that driveway to park.

      Two trees down across trail. One was cut. I broke up the second one, there’s clearance now.
