Slate Valley Trails--Howe Hill Trails

About this Location

Howe Hill Trails are moderate terrain. There are some short steep climbs on Laird’s Loop, some of which may be dangerous in icy conditions. Howe Hill trails are open to walking, hiking, running, and snowshoeing. The trails consist of Laird’s Loop (1.9 miles round-trip) and the Upper Loop (1.0 miles). This trail network represents a partnership between two generous landowners and Slate Valley Trails.
