The Landlocked Forest contains 13 miles of trails and historic backwoods paths.  The trails wind their way up small ravines and through pine forests, blueberry patches, and rock escarpments.  In the winter, the paths are well trodden by showshoers and cross-country skiers, and during the rest of the year, the trails are enjoyed by walkers, trail runners, bicyclists and families looking to find a brief respite from suburban life. These trails are a town asset, and allow visitors to experience and appreciate the natural environment without damaging it.

There is a national movement to create “liveable communities,” and one of the main factors that improves a town’s well-being is access to trails and open space. The Landlocked Forest is such an asset for the Town of Burlington.
