DETOUR: The White Woods Rd. bridge over Bantam River is closed due to construction.
This may impact the canoe and kayak launch.
The Apple Hill Trail (blue rectangle blazes) is located in the south west portion of White Memorial, off East Shore Road. This 2-mile (4 miles out and back) trail takes you over Laurel Hill, which is spectacular when the mountain laurel is in bloom around Father’s Day. It then proceeds through the woods, on a short boardwalk through Cat Swamp, and culminates at the top of Apple Hill. At 1,200 feet in elevation, you get a great view of Bantam Lake from the observation platform located on the hill. You will also pass through a habitat restoration area for the rare New England Cottontail.
