Plouffe Lane Trails

If you’re looking for solitude in nature, check out the Plouffe Lane Trails. This 1.4-mile network of trails, featuring a meadow, river and woods, is one of Charlotte’s lesser-known natural areas. It can be found by taking Carpenter Road to Plouffe Lane. Follow the lane to the end and park your car in the designated parking area. During the winter, the lane is closed to trail user vehicular traffic.  Park instead off Carpenter Road and walk/ski up the lane to the trail system. While there, please respect the homeowners on Plouffe Lane by obeying the speed limit and all posted signs, and be sure to stop at the bench to enjoy the view of the Green Mountains.

Plouffe Lane Trails are maintained by the Charlotte Trails Committee
