Trail Map        Trails: 2 miles     Rating: ★★☆☆☆


This is a combined entry for both the Bradley-Buchanan Woods and Pond Lot.  Both are small properties, but they can be combined with Echo Woods (formerly a Joshua’s Trust property but now part of Mansfield Hollow) for a nice short hike.  The area is important for preserving a rare geologic area called a pitted kame terrace.

History:

Preserved in 1970 and 1986. Bradley-Buchanan Woods was sold to Joshua’s Trust by Wesley Bradley.  Pond Lot was donated by Hugh and Betsey Hamill.
