Wheeler Trail

Close to downtown, this gem of a trail offers a short loop hike over easy terrain.  Named for  Coburn Wheeler, Conservation Commission chair from 1978 to 1989, the trail meanders through mature forest along Wallace Brook and has an open-field spur to a small pond (skating in winter), and links with Cranberry Meadow Pond Trail.  Look for an old-growth white pine near the larger, upstream bridge.  

Limited parking, map, and trail book can be found at the trailhead, which is located on Route 101, .7 mile east of the Route 101/202 traffic lights.
