Century-old paths on a former estate take in field, forest, the wide Merrimack River, and a secluded spring-fed pond. Maudslay State Park offers you a look at a legacy from the past, with landscaping, forest plantings, paths, and old foundations dating back to the mid–nineteenth century. Special Features: magnificent century-old hardwood groves and white pines, spring-fed “Flowering Pond” with lush plantings, Merrimack River views, and handsome stone bridges.
