Over 1000 miles of trail available to explore, and more added each day!

Aldridge Park

Woodland trails with many outcroppings of ledge, boulder fields, glacial erratics and stone walls as well as the Orange Trail, which is an easy, short walk alongside a stream and wetlands.
Trail Activity
2.3 miles, Network
Packed Earth/Dirt
Permitted on leash


From the parking area next to the kiosk, the Blue/Orange Trail leads into the park. Soon, a Yellow Trail enters on the left that creates a loop along the top of the ridge. Follow the Blue/Orange Trail as it descends along a brook. In the spring, there are many wildflowers. The Orange Trail leads up to the Yellow Loop Trail while the Blue Trail continues to descend along the brook. The Blue Trail eventually becomes part of the Yellow Trail that leads out to Stonehedge Road.

NOTE: To create a loop from the Blue Trail back to the Yellow Trail, you will need to climb a short, but steep hill up to the ridge and the Yellow Trail.
