- Bill Rivers Conservation Area Trails
- Cave Hill Area Trails – now an eBird Hot Spot
- Dan Glazier Forest Trail
- East Leverett to Long Hill Trails – has 3 eBird Hot Spots
- Rattlesnake Gutter Area Trails – also an eBird Hot Spot
- Roaring Brook and Bates Sanctuary Trails
Lost and Found on the Trails
Find something on a trail? Take it to the new Trails Lost and Found Box in the front entrance of the Town Hall.
Looking for something you lost on a trail? Go to that same box!
Peripatetic Poetry Boxes
Well, not technically peripatetic because they don’t keep moving, but two have moved:
- The Bill Rivers Trail box is now next to the new bench on the knoll at the Donald H. Bates Sanctuary
- The Bog Bridges Trail box is now next to a bench looking out on the newly-cleared Gordon King Life Estate pond (just east of the blueberries)
But you can be peripatetic as you walk, find the boxes, read the poems – and write new ones. The poetry boxes locations are shown on two maps listed above: East Leverett to Long Hill Trails and Roaring Brook and Bates Sanctuary Trails.
Downloading the Trails (if you use Google Earth or smart phone gps apps)
This link includes “.kmz” files of the trails that Google Earth can use and a “.gpx” file that MotionX-GPS (and some other smart phone apps) can use. There is good help from the program websites and by just googling your problem, but here are some random suggestions for:
- Importing the Leverett Trails .kmz files to Google Earth
- Importing the Leverett Trail .gpx file to MotionX-GPS
These digital maps were prepared by humans. If you see a mistake, please send along suggestions.
- Looking for half-hour or one-hour trail loops? Use this (draft) list.

Reflections on Roaring Brook (the maps)
The following maps are mentioned during the DVD interview with John and Georgana Foster, Reflections on Roaring Brook, September 20, 2014. While they focus on the mill village of East Leverett, there are also maps of the whole town. Please note that, while these maps are in the public domain, they are not always easy to read. The Leverett Library has a wonderful set of historic maps of Leverett created by David Allen (old-maps.com) – just ask for the folio at the front desk.
