From Balance Rock head over to the Trailside Cabin for a view of the pond and to learn more about the geology of this area.
As you hike back can you find the Rock this reservation was named for? Rock House’s large size and position – facing south so that it was naturally warmed by the sun during the day – made it an excellent winter camp for Native Americans.
How many boulders and rock outcrops can you discover around this property? There are plenty to scramble around, in, and among the three miles of trails and woods roads.
Spot the 20- to-30-foot high rock enclosure standing guard over Carter Pond. Do you see any wildlife in or around the pond?
How many of these things can you spot and check off the list? Wildflowers, hardwood forests, pine groves, wild turkeys, beavers, and turtles.
