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.
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.
