      DESCRIPTION
      This 171-acre preserve is a rich area of vernal pools and wetlands, ledges and glacial erratic. An old colonial road that existed long ago is now a trail with side excursions to the 90-ft. gorge of Orris Falls, the Big Bump, Balancing Rock, and overlooks with views of Mt. Agamenticus. Stone foundations on the site were the home and barn of Orris and Mercy Littlefield, who lived there in the late 1800s.

      Visitors have a choice of trails ranging from a 1.5 mile round trip to Orris Falls to the 3-mile round trip to Balancing Rock. The gentle climb to Orris Falls and back can be completed in a leisurely hour. In winter, the beaver marsh often freezes over for skating or snowshoeing.
