This modest reservation provides a portal to a much larger protected landscape of 1,300 acres. The preserve also features a wheelchair-accessible trail.
What makes Malcolm Preserve a special place?
From Malcolm Preserve, you can hike a trail that connects with Two Rod Road, leading you three miles through historic Estabrook Woods to the Town of Concord’s Punkatasset Reserve. You can also trek along a short, wheelchair-accessible trail of packed crushed stone that winds through a portion of the reservation.
The land that makes up Malcolm Preserve and the adjacent Malcolm Meadows development was once part of a 38-acre farm that raised raspberries, strawberries, apples, peaches, and pears, as well as vegetables and cut flowers for local markets. The property is co-owned and co-managed with the Carlisle Conservation Foundation.
One-half-mile crushed stone handicapped-accessible trail.
When to Visit
Year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. Allow a minimum of a ½ hour, longer if exploring Estabrook Woods.
