PHOTO GALLERY - A look at just a few of the more than 1300 acres of protected land in Boxford

Perkins Woods, at the intersection of Rt. 97 and Pye Brook Lane, is almost 18 acres in size with wooded trails, fields, and a vernal pool.

Alpers Woodlot, located on Herrick Rd. across from Wildcat Forest, has a short trail that leads to Four Mile Pond. The large open area shown on the right is perfect for turning around a boat and trailer or for a picnic.

Owen Land, located on Lockwood Forest, Parcel A, these 15 acres along Fish Brook were donated to BTA/BOLT in 2004. Great Blue Herons and ducks can be seen here as well as a variety of wildflowers and other wildlife.

Boxford Town Forest, split in two by Oak Ridge Road in West Boxford, Town Forest I and Town Forest II, each about 30 acres in size,  are owned by the Town of Boxford with the Conservation Restriction held by BTA/BOLT. The clearly marked trails will lead you past vernal pools, eskers, and through a stunning beech forest. When the snow starts to fall, this is the perfect place for snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
