There are many dirt roads and hillsides in which to spend a day exploring the quiet refuges of Corinth. Several trails, established by the Corinth Conservation Commission include the Clement Loop Trail and the Roaring Ridge Trail. Corinth also maintains the F.X. Shea Town Forest, which encompasses 100 acres of quiet woodland and home to black bear and many other forest creatures.
F.X. Shea Town Forest:
Consisting of 100 acres of woodland, this forest is open to hunters during season; not open to ATVs or snowmobiles. Trails are groomed twice a year on average by Town Forest volunteers and others. Many activities take place here throughout the year, including snowshoe hikes (with steamy cups of cocoa to reward intrepid hikers), mid-winter full moon campfire sing-a-longs, hikes hosted by professional naturalists to explore bear habitat; also, tree identification, kids’ outings, wild edibles and so much more.

Roaring Ridge Trail:
The Roaring Ridge Trail is a 0.5-mile, gentle uphill trail with a small loop at the far end; located in western Corinth, near Waits River village. The trail takes you on a short hike up through field and woods, into a cleared opening at approximately 2,000 feet in elevation–-one of the highest points in Corinth–and with expansive views to the east (match what you see with the information board at the summit). This trail makes for a great snowshoe in the winter. Please respect the landowner and the trail: hiking, skiing, bicycling, horse-back riding, etc. are all welcome but motorized vehicles of any kind are prohibited. Picnics are welcome, but fires and camping are not allowed.
