Rolling Meadows Conservation Area, Boxborough

About this Location

Rolling Meadows Conservation Area contains wetland and upland areas. A beautiful brook runs along the northern property line. The front portion of the parcel is a mowed field that extends into a wet meadow and then into a forested wetland. The upland contains mixed hardwoods and softwoods. A small ridge emerges out of the wetlands in the southeast portion of the site. The ridge terminates in a small knoll. A series of stone walls is located around the perimeter and within the site.

There are two entrances along Littlefield Road at breaks in the stone wall. One has a sign with “Rolling Meadows.” The trail in the open field is not marked with stakes or blazes. Just follow the worn paths. A series of inter-connected trails pass through the fields, wet meadows, and forested woodlands.
