Hikers and nature lovers are invited to enjoy the mostly level wooded trails on this 112.8-acre preserve, our largest property. With several marked trails you will pass by wildflowers, occasional streams, and even the ruins of a commercial laundry which operated in the mid-1800s. The land, often called Paradise Hill, was donated by the Bassetts in the 1980s. Links to Ivers Preserve trail.
