This short mile and a half hike actually crosses two properties. This first property is privately owned by the Oak Hill Beagle Club and through a conservation easement the public is allowed to use the trail that crosses their land to get to the Rehoboth Town Forest. There are two marked trails in the forest that were blazed as an Eagle Scout project by Rehoboth’s Troop 13 Jeff Muri. The main trail is blazed red and continues to (and beyond) the back property line. After passing a sitting bench the red trail comes to another intersection. Here you will see a trail ahead that is much more overgrown. There is a sign on a tree to the right reading “End of Public Property”. To your left you will see a trail that is blazed blue. This trail, very rocky in areas, loops back around, up a hill, and along the edge of a field before coming back out to the sitting bench. Turn right here and retrace your steps back to the parking area.
