Description

Wind your way past several ponds that host resident beaver as you explore a former dairy farm that supplied Hillsborough. See the evidence of the site's agricultural past in the old silo still present on the property. Look for birds along Stony Creek, especially the kingfishers that reside near the bridge crossing.
