Follow a network of trails through wetland, hayfields, and wooded upland to discover views and the foundations of an historic mill.
What makes Fork Factory Brook a special place?
The trails here run over an unexpected diversity of landscapes: wetland, hay fields of the former Long Acre Farm, and wooded hillsides offering views of the surrounding area, and the remains of a 19th-century pitchfork mill. Part of a much larger original farm holding, the fields of Long Acre Farm have been in agriculture for at least 300 years. Throughout the 18th century, it was a classic New England self-sufficient farming operation that pastured livestock, grew crops, and harvested hay.
1.5 miles of trails. Easy hiking.
