The Knittel Conservation Area in Blandford is a 254-acre tract comprised of fields, forest and Falls Brook. We will pass through different and interesting types of forest and around a pond with beaver dams. The conservation area helps protect the water supply of 250,000 people and preserve the rural setting for a working farm. Located at the end of Herrick Road, the parcel has been home to the Herrick family farm for generations.
Meet at the Trailhead on 26 Herrick Road in the parking lot. Take Route 23 to 26 Herrick Rd in Blandford. Plan for two hours to loop the entire trail. Maps and bottled water will be provided.
Please be aware that there are no facilities at the trail. Dogs are welcome! No registration required, hike is free, donations are welcome!
