Enter Ridgewood Estates from Falmouth Road and continue to the trailhead. Park at the trailhead.
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.
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.
This property was acquired by the Falmouth Land Trust in 2007.
