SVT hosts a trailhead here for the much larger adjacent lands managed by the Town of Wayland and Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Trails skirt open fields and take walkers along the edge of the river marshes of the Great Meadows.
The fields attract a variety of butterflies and birds, including woodcock and raptors. The knoll in the northernmost field can provide a view in early spring and late fall of goldeneyes, mergansers, and buffleheads on the river.
The Bay Circuit Trail (BCT) crosses this property; the BCT stretches 200 miles through eastern Massachusetts, from Plum Island on the North Shore to Kingston on the South Shore.
