Chamberlin Woods consists of 59 tranquil acres of land, mostly wooded, on the east side of Lowell Road. Trails here connect to the larger Estabrook Woods through property of Middlesex School and private landowners.These woods were the generous gift of the Newbury children who grew up across Lowell Road. The donation of the land to CLCT was completed in 1999.

Easy walk, wet areas, some slight hills

Explore Chamberlin Woods
A quarter of a mile or so after entering the woods, a trail branches off to the left and passes through the stone wall. This leads to a parcel owned by Middlesex School where the trails are open to the public. If one stays on the main trail, keeping the stone wall on the left, it leads through the rear boundary stone wall and continues on to private land. Please stay on the trail and observe posted rules.
On either trail, one eventually comes to a high overlook across Bateman’s Pond. To the south, on the far side of the ravine, is the site of a former trestle ski jump used around 1920. Panorama image courtesy of John Wood.
