Underwood Road Conservation Area

This beautiful 65-acre wooded property was generously donated to North County Land Trust by a local family who wish to remain anonymous. Due to its location in the Ware River Watershed, the DCR Division of Water Supply Protection purchased a conservation restriction on the property through the Forest Legacy Quabbin to Wachusett project. The woodland is a mix of white pine, oak and other hardwoods such as red maple and beech. There are two prominent wetland features – a 6-acre red maple swamp along the western edge of the property and a narrow band of poorly drained wetlands associated with a perennial stream corridor that bisects the property. A prominent knoll in the center of the property is accessed by a 1.4-mile trail loop that nicely highlights much of this property’s natural beauty.

Update: North County Land Trust is in the process of building a Mobility Friendly Trail at the Underwood Conservation Area. Click here to learn more!
