Trail Guide   

Two sections of the town forest, Oaklands and Henderson-Swasey, have extensive, connected trails. Totalling nearly 500 acres between them, these two sections of town forest offer hours of easy strolling. The two are connected by a tunnel under Rt. 101. Follow the trees with the orange blazes.

The parking is more spacious at Oaklands, but the trail is hemmed in by private property. If you park at Oaklands, the best walk is found by following the orange blazes through the Rt. 101 tunnel and into Henderson-Swasey, where the trails are more extensive.
 


NH - Southeast

  Driving Directions   

Park at the Oaklands lot, on Rt. 85 on the Newfields side of the Rt. 101 exit, or at the Henderson-Swasey lot (with room for only a few cars) next to the railroad underpass on Rt. 85.

For those unfamiliar with Exeter, reach either parking spot by taking Rt. 101 to the Newfields/Rt. 85 exit, just past the Squamscott River bridge, or by following Rt. 85 out of the center of Exeter.
