On highway 1 traveling from Saint John to Rothesay take exit 137. Shortly after merging onto St. Martins Road you will see a ballfield on the right. Turn into the parking lot for the ballfield. The trail starts at the back of the parking lot.


The Rothesay Trails are a short loop of trails in a small patch of woods near the highway. The trail behind the ballfield travels through an older Jack Pine Plantation. The back of the loop acccesses Carpenter Pond. A small pond edged by cattails. There is also a beaver hut in the pond. The trail is relatively flat and makes a great place to take a walk.
