The wooded area surrounding Edward Little High School is named ELF Woods, short for Edward Little Forest Woods. This property is owned by the city of Auburn, and Androscoggin Land Trust organizes volunteers to steward the property.
The trail that runs through ELF Woods is known as the Snake Trail, due to the way it curves through the property. The trail is quite steep, partly paved, and connects Edward Little High School to the downtown area at the intersection of Minot Avenue and Elm Street. The total distance of the trail is approximately half a mile.
Directions: To access to the ELF Woods trail, park at the school and look for the trailhead on the eastern side of the school building. The trail diverges twice, once at the second curve and once at the third curve. Both of those trails lead to the edge of ELF Woods.
