The trail isn't certainly where our GPS took us. No marks, no nothing, just houses and driveways. Their website definitely didn't help either. Went to a different trail instead.

Was part of an organized 16 mile hike in and around Andover and boy was it amazing! Trails are well maintained, thanks to the volunteers. Can't wait to snow shoe in the winter.

It most certainly isn't where my GPS took me to for 17 Moreland Avenue. Not sure those people appreciated my touring their driveway at the end of the street either. Never found it. Went to a nearby state park instead.

This trail network is spread widely over Andover and offers A large variety of hiking, walking, XC skiing or snowshoeing trails. Mountain bikers also enjoy the more challenging areas. It's hard to believe you're just 20 miles from Boston, rather than in NH or VT.
