Leominster Trail StewardsLeominster Trail Stewards

The Leominster Trail Stewards (LTS) is a group of like-minded trail users who want to keep our vast trail network open and useable for all to enjoy.

  • If you would like to join the Leominster Trail Stewards committee, contact Neal Wynne at

If you use the trail network and find yourself kicking a stick off the trail or moving a loose pebble here and there, consider helping the LTS by becoming a trail volunteer or even adopting a trail.

Volunteer Trail Adopter

Become a Volunteer Trail Adopter to help maintain a specific segment of trail on your determined schedule. 

  • If you are interested in becoming an adopter, contact Anne Seed at

Trail Workdays

Trail workdays are scheduled on Saturday mornings from 8am-12noon in a select area that needs our efforts. These work days are organized by Dick O’Brien. 

  • If you are interested in volunteering, email Dick at

Report Trail Conditions

If you notice sections of trail where a tree may be down or the trail is not passable, please contact the Trail Stewards. Be sure to include what section of trail it is on (between what two trail markers) as seen on the following maps.

Area Hiking

There are many walking trails located in and around the Barrett Park area. You can take these trails and end up near the waterfall located on Recreation property or that will lead you to another trail. Trails have been cleared and are safe for walking/hiking.

We recommend you take a friend or group along while hiking in the woods for safety reasons. We hope you enjoy the trails that have been designed for the beginner or intermediate hikers.

For more information contact the Recreation Department office or drop in with any questions. Maps are also available in the Recreation office at 40 Barrett Parkway.
