Come explore a small portion of Harold Parker State Forest. Harold Parker is a hidden gem, with a wide variety of trails accessible for hiking and biking. We will walk past beaver dams and ponds, traveling on a well-maintained forest trail, making our way first to the old soapstone quarry site and finally to the historic Jenkins Mill site.
A wonderfully diverse 2-hour walk. Children are very welcome. Dogs can come along, but they must be group friendly and leashed.
We'll meet at the parking area on Middleton Road at the "pavilion" between Jenkins and Harold Parker Roads. (Look for event signs. For GPS, use 614 Middleton Rd, North Andover. Note this is NOT the Berry Pond beach parking area.)
