The highlight of this 30-acre parcel is the forest: our forester says the trees are all older than 80 years – some may be 150. For context: +/-150 years ago gets us to the Civil War! It’s a mystery why this parcel wasn’t logged before we got it: access is good and the timber is high-quality. Regardless of the reason, our plan for the next decade is to leave it alone.

Un-marked trails wind through the property; the best access to the trails is from the northeast corner. Exploring off-trail, you’ll find steep ledges (at the southeast) and a very pretty stream (the western boundary).

From the intersection of Kessler and Scott Roads in Lanesborough, 0.5 miles to an unimproved pull-off on the left.
