About Baxter Woods

Baxter Woods is a 30-acre nature preserve offering towering pines, river views and quiet, shaded trails suitable for foot and bike traffic. The park is open from dawn to dusk. A large informational sign marks the start of the main trail from Stevens Avenue . Due to large tree roots on some of the smaller trails, wheelchairs and strollers may want to stick to the main trail, which runs from Stevens Avenue to Forest Avenue . The trails connect to Evergreen Cemetery across Stevens Avenue . To continue your walk to Back Cove, cross Forest Avenue to Walton Street and the site of the former Baxter School and follow sidewalks to Back Cove.
