Join us for a rugged hike to the interior of an incredible 236-acre, scenic tract with an extensive woods-road and forestry trail network. The property contains specialized wildlife habitat including a spring-fed perennial stream at the headwaters of Stevens Brook and a high saddle containing a vernal pool. The rocky summit ledges and steep, south-facing rock talus slopes feature a rare sedge species and old growth red oak dry rocky ridge forest.
