Spring Walk Linking Three Great Conservation Properties

Harvard Conservation Commission’s Land Stewardship Subcommittee is leading a hike on Sunday, April 8, meeting at 1:30 pm at the parking lot for Village Nursery School on Poor Farm Road in Harvard.

From our start, the full route includes three properties. We begin with a loop on the Harvard Conservation Trust’s scenic Ohlin Property down to the banks of Bowers Brook. We next swing through Harvard’s Town Forest and then cross over Rt. 2 on Poor Farm Road to traverse the Kaufmann land, taking in its striking cliffs. Finally, for the energetic, there’s an additional extension following the Kaufmann Trail to South Shaker Rd (dotted line on the map), and back.

Enjoy our public land and a great hike nearby. Moderate pace; about 3 hours on uneven terrain for full route. Drizzle/flurries ok; rain or much snow (ground or air) cancels. Well-controlled dogs OK. Personal tick protection suggested.
