This Week’s Take Your Own Trail Walk: Carlisle’s Greenough Land around Greenough Pond, by Clem Larson, Bedford Trails Committee

May 23, 2021 - May 29, 2021

Free

The Greenough Land trails provide the walker with beautiful forest, water and field vistas–

“The Greenough Land – at 242 acres – is the largest conservation parcel owned by the Town of Carlisle. Purchased in 1973 from the estate of Henry Vose Greenough, it contains a wonderful combination of upland and wetland woods, a large pond and wetlands (part of the Page’s Brook watershed), agricultural fields, and a barn. Native Americans certainly used this land first. European settlers came to this property in 1757 and started a long history of agricultural use of the land. The flat fertile meadows on the property were once a training ground for the Revolutionary soldiers.”

Please see attached.
