The North Attleboro Town Forest is known for its dog parks more so than its trails, however, the trails here are quite nice (and used mostly by dog walkers). Coming in from the main entrance just to the left of the dog parks you will come to a trail intersection. For this hike, I decided to do the green blazed perimeter trail to see the most of the property. Turning left onto the loop trail you will find yourself in a tunnel of towering pines. The trail is soft from fallen pine needles. The trail turns to the north and then east. Pines are still quite prevalent, however, oaks and maples start to join into the mix. The forest floor also now has a covering of low laying shrubs. The trail turns south and then west coming back to the back side of the dog park. The trails are marked with blazes on posts at each intersection.
