Several parcels of land make up this 268-acre preserve. Some are owned by the Cumberland Land Trust and others by the Town of Cumberland. The land is gently rolling with ridges affording views, trails through open woods and wetlands, and a meadow with benches for observing bluebirds (on the Bluebird Trail). A high tension power line bisects the area. Some parts of this area were farmed until the 1970ís.
