According to one of the caretakers, the trails within the Ames Hill - Marlboro Community Center Land are open to the public.

Description

This trail branches off the Marlboro Town Trail (between the gap in the stone wall) and runs eastward. It runs along the edge of a property (in the woodline) out to an open field. It arcs around the woodline and travels through open fields to South Road. Cross the road and travel along an old woods road to the beaver dam.

Right before the beaver dam, the trail takes an immediate right. This small spur appears to be a new trail relocation, that utilizes newly built foot bridges. The trail travels through a mostly evergreen forest out to the north end of South Pond. At Kenmore Point, the trail crosses South Pond to the southeast corner.

Look for the small blue plastic diamond to re-connect to the southern shore. The trail connects to the South Pond Summer Trail and heads south. This portion of trail travels through the Ames Hill - Marlboro Community Center Land. The trail ties into Judd Road and follows this out to the main gravel road. Here, the trail takes a sharp left turn, then an immediate right.

This area is difficult to navigate through. It arcs around (back to Judd Road) and crosses over it. Descend and turn left (into the open field). Along this stretch, there's a seep, where one might be treated with a small handful of cranberries. Make your way down to Lucier Road and cross over it. Cross over South Road and continue until you reach Race Trail/ Squirrel Loop.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Large Cranberry, Eastern Hemlock, White Birch, Pussy Willow.
Fauna: Juncos, Mallards, Canadian Geese, Black-Capped Chickadee, Wood Frog, Red Squirrel, Red-Breasted Nuthatch.
