About Road’s End
Once a farmstead that was selectively lumbered and cleared for agricultural purposes, Road's End proves that the land can return to its natural state if given the chance. A white pine forest now stands in an old field and pastures have become beaver meadows.
Two gentle loop trails through the fields, forests, and along a brook quickly transport to you the "middle of nowhere."

- Bear claw marks can be seen on the American beech trees.
- Rock walls, pine woodlands, beaver ponds, and a previously harvested forest provide clues to past land use and nature's recovery.
