Willowdale Road West Professional Reviews and Guides

"Adjacent to the sprawling grounds of Bradley W. Palmer State Park lie the smaller, lesser-known trails of Willowdale Mill, a property of the Essex County Greenbelt Association.

Once the site of a nineteenth-century textile mill, the land has reverted back to forest and offers the nature lover a pleasant walk along the banks of the Ipswich River. Wood ducks, screech owls, kingfishers, downy woodpeckers, cedar waxwings, and a variety of other birds can be observed here. Highlights: Riverside walk and old mill site."

"This hike explores the Pine Swamp of the popular Willowdale State Forest, taking a detour halfway through to travel along the Ipswich River to a scenic 19th century milldam."

Very pleasant woods walk, nothing strenuous. Go early and have the whole place to yourself. Be sure to download a map, but be aware that the map and the ground don't always seem the same.
