      No parking is available. Access to his parcel is very difficult. The reserve is at the very end of Wright Lane in Great Barrington.

      It’s a shame that this property is difficult to find as the hardwood forest with exposed ledges is very pretty. These 41 acres are great habitat for wild turkey – lots of acorns and adjacent to farmland!
