About this Location

The nearly two-mile system is blazed with blue, white, and yellow trails. There are several access points to the property including the Elmwood Drive entrance which features a footbridge over a small stream. The main entrance, opposite Fatima Drive, along Metacom Avenue, offers a small parking area. The property is rich with old stone walls, vernal pools, and old towering oaks and maples. The blue-blazed trail runs from Metacom Avenue westerly to the power line easement and the yellow loop trail. The yellow trail loops through the midsection of the property passing areas of birch trees, a cedar grove, and small outcrops of pudding-stone. The white-blazed trail at the northern end of the property weaves along the edge of a meadow and through areas of thickets that are a haven for birds. The property is especially suited for photography of flowers and birds. The property has had a wildlife survey done and is home to rabbits, toads, robins, blue jays, woodpeckers, finches as well as an abundance of wildflowers.
