About Lynes Woods
Forest, shrubby fields, wetlands, and old stone walls tell the story of Lynes Woods’ past as a former working farm and orchard. Here you can take a easy one-mile-loop walk along a quiet woodland path to crystal clear Lyman Brook and listen for the music of water rushing over rocks.
