About this Location

The trails at Weeks Woods consist of two loops: the lower loop (blazed in yellow) is along logging roads and is fairly wide and flat. An upper loop extension (blazed in blue) is a single-track hiking path. The wide yellow loop trail is also flat, great for cross-country skiing, walking, and a nice trail to bring the children along. A 1.3-mile hike on these spacious paths is possible, or you can lengthen your walk to 2 miles by including both loops.

Weeks Woods was once the property of Samuel Gilman, who, like many homesteaders in the 1800s, used it for sheep pasture. But by the time John and Esther Weeks acquired 85 acres in 1943, it had returned to forest. The Weeks family reclaimed some fields for the Guernsey cow herd but also used some of their lands for tree farming, harvesting trees in 1952 and 1962. The logging roads used then still exist and are great for easy hiking or cross-country skiing.
