Trail Guide   

A small parcel of woods at the confluence of the Piscassic and Lamprey Rivers, the Sliding Rock Conservation area offers more to see than to walk, but the sights are striking enough to merit a visit anyway. This 2.5 acre woods was donated to the town by the developer of the large apartment complexes surrounding it.

The woods are just deep enough to get you out of sight of buildings and the road. At the tip, where the property sticks out into the rivers, is an overlook. While located on the built-up side of the river, the property looks out to completely undeveloped woods across the river. Wildlife sighting is good here.
