Follow a network of trails through wetlands, hayfields, and wooded uplands to discover views and the foundations of an historic mill.
Fork Factory Brook’s trails run over an unexpected diversity of landscapes, from wetlands to fields of the former Long Acre Farm, and even to the remains of the successful 19th-century pitchfork mill that gave the reservation its name.
Explore this bucolic landscape along a mile and a half of easy hiking trails.
