The Henrich and Johnson Woods are across the street from 107 North Washington Street. Parking location and availability is subject to change with construction of the Rail-Trail.
The Henrich and Johnson Woods are two adjacent donated woodlands where trails can take visitors through numerous distinct ecological features. Vernal pools are numerous but dwarfed by a large pond populated by frogs and salamanders. Continuing along the trail, you will find small patches of American beech trees within a pine forest with a notable woodpecker presence as made evident by the holes they left behind. Eventually, you will find a bend in the Rumford River peeking through the trees, flanked by shrubs that songbirds pick berries from.
The trails alone are less than 2 miles of firm ground and minimal elevation changes. For an extended walk we recommend you explore the new Rail-Trail or Johnson Acres across the street.
