Zins Conservation Area

Photo of Zins Conservation AreaThe 7-acre Zins Conservation Area is a beautiful woodland donated by the Hudson family in 2014. A cart path starting at the trail head leads to private property over which the owner has generously given permission for North County Land Trust to maintain a wide trail that leads to the stunning Bickford Pond Reservoir. This reservoir is part of the water supply system for the City of Fitchburg and the City holds a conservation restriction on the Zins Conservation Area and the private land for the purposes of water supply protection.
