Pine Grove Nature Trail

Loring / Restoule


These trails offer an easy, peaceful walk through a mixed forest which is dominated by maple and other upland hardwood species. A few interpretive signs are found along the trail which talk about the various species of trees located in the area. Situated close to the Pickerel River, the property is a part of a historically significant area, replete with native culture, as well as evidence of early European settlements and logging practices which can still be seen today. Navigating the trails themselves is not difficult as most intersections are signed with arrow markets indicating the trail’s eventual destination.
