White's Farm Trail forms a loop, wending its way alongside a large wetland, beside Sucker Creek, through an open field and into woodland. The level crushed granite trail is largely shaded with many gentle turns.
This four season, non-motorized trail is perfect for walkers, bikers, bird watchers, photographers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers.
Many song and water birds will be seen or heard. Turtles bask on fallen trees, beavers engineer dams and frogs provide the musical accompaniment. Moose, deer, and black bears visit the area.
Several benches and picnic spots are available.
