Check out the Little River Trail System – A Hidden Newburyport Treasure

I have had so many go out on their own and just be blown away by the Little River Trail Network – because the local papers of record won’t post the press releases; so many missed out on the July tour.

WE’LL BE DOING ANOTHER ONE THE 20TH OF AUGUST AT 8:30 IN THE MORNING THIS TIME AT THE COOPER NORTH PASTURE TRAIL HEAD.

There is limited parking so I would suggest leaving vehicles at the Little River Nature Trail Head or at the Cable Company’s parking lot and walking to the Cooper North entrance.

See you there!

Called the Little River Trail System – five beautiful trails, one a pedestrian/bike trail, that encompasses a wild area composed of lovely pastures, deep forest, verdant wetlands and in which harbor vernal pools with their unique creatures.        Though surrounded on three sides by urban settings of industrial & retail businesses, and residential neighborhoods; it’s the home of a rich variety of bird life, and animals that you wouldn’t picture being so near a city: beaver, coyote, deer, fox and otter coupled with hawks, herons,  owls and wild turkey.

The City has already invested large sums to obtain the wetlands in this area so the area can do the job of soaking up excess precipitation and providing a rich resource of ground water.
