The 52-acre Miller Farm was donated to CLCT by the Poutasse family in 2001. The property consists of wooded upland and farm land along Sudbury Road. CLCT plans to continue to lease the open land for agricultural purposes.
Across Sudbury Road from the Miller Farm Farm is the Town-owned Willow Guzzle. If you enter here and turn right, the trail takes you past an abandoned well and windmill and then climbs steeply, entering CLCT’s Anderson Woods. As you enter the Thornton Woods you can find white oaks and ferns and glimpses of the ledge outcrops that underlie the length of the ridge.
