With access from a pair of parking areas on Rice Road, the extensive trails in this conservation area can be used to form a variety of loops both long and short. Color-blazed trails navigate visitors past old reservoirs along Snake Brook, alive with ducks and herons, and through forests where you can keep an eye and ear open for signs of pileated woodpeckers. Outcrops and stone walls offer a view of the underlying geology. The trail along the fields near the upper parking area offers a great setting for springtime bird watching.
Please note that Mainstone Farm is privately owned. Portions of the land are not open to the public. Please stay on designated trails, shown on the map.
In Fall 2022, we created an audio tour and special trail route to celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of Mainstone Farm's conservation. Although the signposts for the audio tour have been removed from the trail, you can still read or listen to the narrative.
