About this Location

Hitchiner Town Forest contains 208 acres. The property was once farmland, as evidenced by the many stone walls. The highlight of the walk is Burns Hill at an elevation of 751′. The hilltop is a delight with views to the west, exposed granite bedrock, blueberry, ground juniper, red cedar, pitch pine, and stunted oaks. The steepest part of the trail has been eased by steps cut into the hillside.

The main trail was designed and built by boy scout Owen Kelley with help from Scout Troop 4.

The trail to Burns Hill leaves thru the stone wall and across the field on the left side of Mullen Road. The trail turns right, crosses a bridge, and rises gently. You will soon come to the remains of an old farm road, turn left. Watch for the white blazes, they will indicate a turn to the right up a very steep grade. Continuing straight will bring you onto private property. Please follow the blazes and stay on town land.
