The Haggett's Rail Trail follows the former rail bed of the Lowell & Lawrence RR passing by Haggett's Pond. For more information visit; ANDOVER TRAILS .
Starting from Haggett's Pond Road; A map board is located at the trail head. Follow the wide, hard packed dirt, gravel and stone-dust trail north through the woods and alongside Haggett's Pond. Cross a causeway between the pond and a marsh at 0.4 miles. Trail narrows at 0.6 miles as you leave the pond behind. Come to a spur trail on your right just past the rock cut at 1.8 miles.
Note; If you follow the wide dirt and grass trail through the meadow it will bring you to an intersection in the woods. Continue straight along a hard packed dirt trail to a second intersection and bear left. This brings you to a nice overlook of Haggett's Pond after 0.2 miles. Other hiking trails allow you to circle around the pond.
Continuing north the trail ends after 1 mile at High Plain Rd where you'll find another map board.
