Given the time of year, the trails were covered with lots of ice, so walking was difficult at times. However, it was still beautiful walking through pine trees. There was also a historic site (the Hamilton house?) which was cool.

Gorgeous site with lots of trails through the woods and along the Salmon Falls River. Dogs on a leash welcome. You can also walk onto the grounds of the Hamilton House, a beautiful mansion and perennial gardens that is run by Historic New England.

It's sort of a hidden gem for hiking and snowshoeing. Can get pretty rugged along some of the paths, but all in all a very pleasant hike/snowshoe. Lookouts with seats at some spots allow for a rest with a scenic view. Trails are well-maintained.

Nice parcel of land along the Salmon Falls River. Easy to spot wildlife. Nice overlook of the Hamilton House.

Vaughan Woods is a great place to take a short or long hike through the woods. The hike overlooks the Salmon Falls River, with excellent views of the water way, as well as historical sights such as the Hamilton House. If you want a relatively easy, but enjoyable hike through the woods, come here.
