The White’s Farm Trail is named for the White family who farmed the property beginning in the 1920s. Much of the current trail runs through land that was hayfield over 50 years ago. The looped trail winds its way alongside a larger wetland area, beside Sucker Creek, then curls through open field and woodland. The level, meandering pathway provides a pleasant, shaded outing during the hot summer months.
Animosh Trail was created by Kearney’s Dog Sled Committee. The 1 km trail climbs steeply at the mid-point up the aptly named Widowmakers hill.
Please note: The walking trails are intersected at several places by snowmobile trails. These follow the route of a former winter logging road.
From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, take HWY 11 south for 94.6 km (58.8 mi). Take a slight right at HWY 592. After 4 km (2.48 mi), turn left at HWY 518, and travel for 8.1 km (5 mi). Turn right at Main Street, and take a slight right to stay on Main.
