We got lost at the beginning, but then we had lots of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. It's an easy trail for the winter. I can't wait to hike it in the summer.

Life Track

The Methuen Life track is a running track used for public walking or events organized by the town or the nearby high school. The fact that this small, underwhelming track is even on this app is the reason why I love this it. All trails literally has all trails. From trails scaling mountains to tracks in the middle of suburbia, this app has it all. No trail is overlooked. If you are looking at the marker of the track on the all trails map, it is actually in the wrong spot. If you switch to satellite view and zoom out a bit, you will see the actual track just north-west of where it is marked on the map. It is the large blue running track. If you are looking for a journey or even an adventure, this track is not for you. It is generally boring and doesn't provide much to see and really isn't worth a trip if you are more than 20 minutes away. However, if you are in the area, this is a great place to go for a short afternoon walk just to get outside for a little bit. The sun sets in a way that overlooks the track and can actually be quite beautiful given the weather conditions. In closing, it's nothing special but it can be a very nice place to unwind and relax.

My mom and I did this together and were pleasantly surprised. We went up Sumit St. first which we were glad about because it was a bit of a killer, wouldn't want to have to do that at the end. The stairways are really neat and I never knew they were there. There is also a nice park.
