Trail Description

The Anderson-Crosier Woods host a network of trail loops mostly running north and south, traversing the east slope of Tower Hill and crossing GLT and private property. Access to the trails is most easily done by parking at the Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary at 67 Old Upton Road and entering the trail system through the white gate. 

The trails are also accessible by horseback riders from the stable at 79 Old Upton Road.

From the railroad tracks on Browns Road, proceed north along the tracks 1/10 mile to where the trail starts on the left (east) side. Follow the trail west 3/10 of a mile through two early successional fields to the Anderson-Crosier Wood boundary. Once on the ACW the trail branches. The right branch leads north, eventually to the G&U railroad on the northern end of the ACW then loops back south to this point. The straight branch continues west toward the Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary then turns north.

When visiting these parcels, please respect the posted regulations.
No motorized vehicles are allowed on Grafton Land Trust Properties or Conservation Restrictions!
