Description 

This 70-acre property is located on the north side of Falmouth Road between Route 9 and Allen Avenue Extension in the Ridgewood Estates development. The trails at Falmouth Corners cover over a mile of varied terrain including streams and some steep ravines. Each trail is of varying distance and difficulty but they have all been well maintained and cleared. 

Natural Features

A secondary growth forest of pine, hemlock and maple shields a thick understory of smaller maple, elm and ferns. The wetlands, small brooks and ravines are home to associated plants and small animals.  There are a number of vernal pools in this area so please be aware of the breeding activity during early spring season. 

History

This property was acquired by the Falmouth Land Trust in 2007.
