Boardwalk gets you there

Milling the hemlock planks at the Freeman Farm in Brimfield


The trail network at the Coxhall Kitchen Garden and Deer Park Preserve takes you up and over, around and through the fields, woods and walls near Barre and Simpson Roads in Hardwick. There are many interesting things to see along the wetland edges and dry oak ridgetop. The recently completed boardwalk helps you get there from the hay field, by spanning Fish Brook just below an old stone wall. We will be formally dedicating the property on June 15th.
