As part of the Small's Farm APR Project, the Small family donated to CGLT a strip of land running along Sevenmile River and Turkey Hill Brook to create the John Wesley Small and Eleanor Small Downey Memorial Trail.
Trail clearing and sign marking along this beautiful stretch of river is in progress although the trail is not fully cleared!
PLEASE FOLLOW THE TRAIL SIGNS AND STAY OFF OF FARM FIELDS.
The trail crosses Turkey Hill Brook at a ford where the water can be more than a foot deep at times.
Trailhead on Route 31N, just north of the intersection of Wire Village Rd, Meadow Rd, Hillsville/North Spencer Rd, Spencer MA 01562
There is room for 2-3 cars at the Trailhead Sign, on the edge of Route 31 just before the guard rail for the Sevenmile River Bridge. TAKE CAUTION, TRAFFIC IS FAST ON ROUTE 31.
An overflow parking area is across Route 31, over the bridge just before the entrance to Pine Grove Cemetery. WATCH FOR TRAFFIC WHEN CROSSING ROUTE 31.
