The Thornton and Anderson Woods are some of CLCT’s lesser known properties. To access, park in CLCT’s small designated parking area off of Garfield Road at Thornton Woods, or park along Sudbury Road and walk through the Town’s Willow Guzzle property. Lots of residents in the neighborhood love to use this trail system.
