Linebrook Woods Conservation Area is a 78-acre parcel of wooded uplands and wetlands with trails that connect to Willowdale State Forest to the south and the Dow/Bull Brook Reservoir area to the north. Nice wooded trails, mainly single track. There are three short bridges over creek crossings that support equestrian use. The Bay Circuit Trail crosses through this property.
While most of this reservation protects more than 50 acres of salt marsh, its most popular feature is Whites Hill, a coastal drumlin that offers unobstructed views of Crane Beach, the Crane Wildlife Refuge, and Halibut Point. More info by following the link below.
For a memorable experience, take the 0.71-mile Stevens Trail up the spine of Weir Hill to where a scenic overlook opens on the right. Enter the trail from the parking area at 65 Stevens Street. Hikers enjoy a broad panorama of the Merrimack Valley spreading below.
