Skyfields: Willis Woods Loop Trail and Arboretum (Athol)

Ownership: 
Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust
Gift From: 
Margaret "Peggy" Power-Biggs (1999)
Directions: 

1461 Old Keene Road, Athol, MA.

The 40 acres of bucolic meadows and mixed-deciduous forest surrounding the headquarters of Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust are a pleasure to wander. You can take a leisurely walk around the arboretum, where signs will help you identify and learn about native trees of our region. Heading west across Old Keene Road, you can walk around the gently sloping hills of Willis Woods on a loop trail created in 2006. You can circumnavigate both the arboretum and Willis Woods trails in about an hour, but take your time!

Skyfields is open to the public for non-motorized outdoor recreation including hiking, bird watching, nature study, and hunting.
