Samuel Cote Preserve Opening

 

 

SAMUEL COTE PRESERVE

(31 Acres)

We  opened on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 1:00 PM for the first time.

Several people came on a beautiful sunny day with  beautiful blue sky to walk these

unusual and serene 31 acres of

hay and corn fields, pine forests with paths of pine

needles underfoot, 500 feet along Spalding Pond.

 

The Preserve is open Daylight Hours Only . Look for Preserve sign at 32c Clarks Falls Road,

near Pendleton Hill Road/Clarks Falls junction.

Dogs on leashes okay.

Comfortable walking, no hills, no rocky climbs. See trail map and photos below.

The geodetic map shows that this preserve is part

of a flood plain of fertile soils.
