This property was purchased from the Gardner Family in 1995. Now known as the Gardner Farm, this 41 acre parcel was actively farmed for much of the eighteen and nineteen hundreds before being allowed to naturally reseed. The trails begin at a dirt parking area on Hummock Pond Road, loop through grassy fields, and lead down to the edge of Hummock Pond. By following the trail northeast, it is possible to access the Massachusetts Audubon’s Lost Farm Sanctuary and the Land Bank’s Millbrook Road property.
Follow Hummock Pond Road out of town. Once you pass Bartlett Farm Road on your left, look for a large open parking area on your right.
Land Bank trails are marked by the post shown here. Most Land Bank trails are created as loops and if you follow the arrows—the trail should return you to where you began.
