I am always trying to find ways to engage my daughter to get outside. One of her favorite type of trails are storybook trails. I mean, what’s better than encouraging your child to read all while getting fresh air and exercise.
At HighBridge Hill Elementary School in New Ipswich is a great little storybook Trail. The trail is open spring, summer and fall, but closed during the winter months. The trail is about .6 miles long. When you turn into Highbridge Hill Elementary School, take a right to drive up towards the fields. There is a parking lot on top of the hill. There is a small clump of trees and that is where the trail starts. From here it is a little confusing, but it goes across the road you drove in on down into the woods. The trail is easy to follow from there. You do walk by the schools playground, in case you have a child that is easily distracted by playgrounds. A great way to get your little ones out on the trail. The trail is not stroller friendly.
