Point of Interest
“The Little River Community Trail starts from the parking lot beyond the Water District Buildings. The trail goes through some nice stands of pine and along the scenic Belfast Reservoir. The section of the trail from here to the Perkins Rd is only about a mile. It’s maintained, but may have wet spots or roots in the trail. ”
