Trail Description

The Anderson-Crosier Woods host a network of trail loops mostly running north and south, traversing the east slope of Tower Hill and crossing GLT and private property. Access to the trails isn't great, with the closest parking being along the Grafton-Upton Railroad where it crosses Browns Road to the south and east and Sibley Street to the north. The trails are also accessible by horseback riders from the stable at 79 Old Upton Road.

From the railroad tracks on Browns Road, proceed north along the tracks 1/10 mile to where the trail starts on the left (east) side. Follow the trail west 3/10 of a mile through two early successional fields to the Anderson-Crosier Wood boundary. Once on the ACW the trail branches. The right branch leads north, eventually to the G&U railroad on the northern end of the ACW then loops back south to this point. The straight branch continues west toward the Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary then turns north. A connecting trail from Old Upton Road through the Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary is planned.

When visiting these parcels, please respect the posted regulations.
No motorized vehicles are allowed on Grafton Land Trust Properties or Conservation Restrictions!

It's currently Mud Season. Until it dries up, we ask that you please refrain from biking, horseback riding, or even walking, on muddy trails. Erosion caused by trail traffic during mud season causes irreparable damage, creating ruts and permanently exposing rocks and roots.
Please read this notice and watch this site for timely updates.
