West House Trail

West House Trail (0.7 miles)

  • Surface: Natural
  • Traffic: Hiking Only

The West House Trail meanders through a gorgeous forest, just north of the Lake Jeannette spillway that feeds into Lake Townsend. The end of the trail leads to an historic home site known as the West House, built between 1815 and 1820. The decorative “Flemish Bond” brick work was relatively expensive to construct and somewhat rare for this area. In 2002, the trail was blazed by the Crafty Cruisers hiking club.

How do I get there?

The West House Trail is located on the west side of North Church Street, across the street and north of the southern trailhead of the Peninsula Trail. Parking is available along the road, but please use caution.

Please Note:

Bicycles are prohibited on the West House Trail. The Watershed Trails are open year-round from sunrise to sunset.
