Apple Hill Trail
The Apple Hill Trail (blue rectangle blazes) is located in the southwest portion of White Memorial, off East Shore Road. There are two trailheads. From the northern entrance, the trail takes you on a 1.5-mile journey (3 miles out and back) that begins on 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 beautiful view of Bantam Lake and surrounding landscape from the observation platform on the hill. You can also reach the top of Apple Hill by entering from the southern entrance on East Shore Rd. From there, the walk is 1/2 mile to the platform (1 mile out and back). You will pass through a habitat restoration area for the New England Cottontail on your way.
