The Woods and Swale Trail gently goes up and down through an old forest, then it continues through a pine plantation, skirts the wet swale, and traverses the side of a hill to the north trailhead on Sherman Road. Return via the trail or road.
How to get there
From Essex, follow Lake Shore Road south for about 12.5 miles to the intersection with Sherman Road, where you'll see the trailhead.
By the numbers
- An easy 1-mile trail
- Minimal elevation change
