      The Anderson-Crosier Woods is a fifteen acre parcel on the eastern slope of Tower Hill. It connects to the 3.5 acre Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary on the south side and lies along the Grafton & Upton Railroad on the north east side. It is a short distance from Grafton Common, and located in a picturesque New England farming area.
      The parcel consists of a steep wooded hill on the northwest side, more level wooded land in the south, and a flat wetland area on the east side. There are many large hardwood trees and a few large pines in the woodlands. Views from the trails on the hills are surprisingly open in winter - long view lines through the forest below can be had then.

      Prescott Wildlife Sanctuary is 3.5 acres of woodlands and wetlands and can be accessed from Old Upton Road. It has a trail that winds from the white gate along Old Upton Road around the the left over an intermittant stream, and then arcs right to the north side of property, where it enters the Anderson-Crosier Wood. It is one of the first purchases by the Grafton Land Trust back in the 1960's.

      These trails were designed and built by Ken Holberger, former President of the Grafton Land Trust and currently on the Board of Directors. Ken is an avid mountain biker, which is reflected in the design and layout of the trails - old school, making excellent use of natural features and the lay of the land. There is even a steep switchback section

      From the Prescott and Anderson-Crosier properties it is a short ride over to the new property recently purchased by the Grafton Land Trust in the Miscoe Brook Area and from there on to the trails around Silver Lake. All of the trails in these areas are on Trailforks, albeit in a somewhat raw form. Volunteers who want to work on updating the trails please feel free to submit edits.
