Points of Interest

1. Pitch Pine restoration site

A logging operation put more sunlight on the ground, and young pitch pines are regenerating vigorously as a result. This test site will help guide efforts to restore pitch pine habitat on a larger scale.

2. Old Parker Place

A farmhouse once stood here, connected to Plain Road and Hazard Road by a cart path. The central chimney is just a jumble of stones now, but the foundation wall closest to the trail is fairly intact.

3. Hemlock Ridge

Hemlocks are part of the Tillinghast forest, but limited to a few scattered groves, thriving on damp hillsides. Look for large evergreens with tiny needles and cones, much smaller than those of the neighboring white pines.

4. Coney Cascades

Coney Brook runs flat for nearly all of its 2-mile course, but here it drops abruptly through and around a series of old dams. American Power Conversion helped build the bridges and railings, allowing TNC to route the trail safely through one of prettiest spots on the property.
