Fosdick Preserve

Description:

The Fosdick Preserve is an assemblage of five properties that straddle Boggs Hill Road near the intersection of Willowbrook Road. On the west side of Boggs Hill Road visitors will find excellent hiking along two miles of trails over pleasant woodland and hilly terrain. As one climbs the hill from the Head O’Meadow School parking lot, a full-flowing brook offers waterfall scenes to photo-buffs. Hikers will be treated to several stonewalls, interesting rock outcroppings and varied and interesting terrain. A mixture of various hardwood trees comprise this relatively young, aggrading forest. The absence of larger, older trees belies its former use as pastureland.

 

On the east side of Boggs Hill Road, two large boulders mark the entry to 1,700 feet of trail that will guide the intrepid explorer through a complex of swamp and wetland features, bedrock outcroppings, and several fine beech trees.
