Trail Description

Hunter Brook Preserve features a relatively flat lower parking area at the entrance with a well inclined gravel farm road to the somewhat undulating open woodlands and rocky ledges/outcroppings as you go further into the property. The property was transferred from City ownership in 2023 and prior to tax foreclosure had been proposed for 71 dwelling units. Deer, turkey and a wealth of other birds are regularly seen.
