Town Forest History

Today the Salem Town Forest serves not only as conservation land and protected environment for many wildlife species, but also recreational land that everyone can enjoy. With a 3.7 mile trail network, it’s a splendid place to walk (with or without dogs), ride horses, or mountain bike. There are abundant spring wildflowers, summer blueberries, and colorful fall foliage. In late fall hunters can search for deer during a limited hunting season. During winter, snow covered trails provide excellent snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing terrain. Any time of the year, Salem’s Town Forest provides a wonderful place to relax, spend time outdoors and learn about our natural resources.
