Due to several incidents since the opening of the Maplecroft Trail in Ipswich, ECTA has temporarily closed the trail in order to address signage and safety issues as well as to ensure that adjacent private lands are not trespassed on. While significant public funding went to protect 247 acres, the MARKED TRAIL IS THE ONLY PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE portion of the farm. We will post an alert on this website as soon as the trail is open for all to enjoy.
Remember, Trail Users must:
Stay only on the marked trail. The public is not permitted elsewhere on this or on neighboring properties.
Maplecroft is a working farm, therefore no dogs or bikes are permitted.
Please close gates behind you.
The trail is open from 8AM to Sunset.
In order to make this and other trail easements work, all ECTA members and trail users should follow these regulations and encourage others who may not know them to do the same. Enjoy this incredible trail.
