Enjoy an easy-moderate hike on the trails in Marblehead’s Forest River conservation area. This 26-acre property includes the salt Massabeguash Marsh, tidal ponds as well as upland fields and woods. Part of the area was once a gravel pit, with the gravel reportedly used in the building of Logan Airport.
At just over 1.5 miles of trails covering the entire area, a hiker enjoys waterside, woodlands, and high ground. Some of the area near the river floods at high tide, making it a good idea to check local tide tables to be sure you are properly shod for your walk.
