Small's Swamp Trail

Length: 0.6 mile loop, 30 minutes.
Location: Turn right off Route 6, 1.2 miles past the brown Head of the Meadow Beach sign, at the Pilgrim Heights area sign. Walk begins and ends at
the covered shelter.
Features: Chosen by Native People for living sites for thousands of years for water, protection, and food sources, early-European settlers also sought to make a living on this landscape. Gradually, the soil gave out, farms were abandoned, and the landscape began its slow recovery. The forest here now hides most, but not all, of the former land uses in this area.
Conditions: Easy; some log steps; moderate grade; short boardwalk surface; picnic area and seasonal restrooms in adjacent parking area.
