About Rutland Brook
Combined with neighboring conservation lands, Rutland Brook is part of one the most extensive parcels of uninterrupted protected land in central Massachusetts.
Here, moderate-to-strenuous interlinking trails wind though cathedral-like stands of hemlocks and white pine and along boulder-strewn Rutland Brook.
- Cooling off on a summer day by walking along the hemlock-lined Rutland Brook.
- The large and impressive porcupine den at the base of a steep ledge.
- Moose signs, especially scrapes on young red maples.
- Educational programs offered through Wachusett Meadow and Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuaries.
