Charles L. Peirce Wildlife and Forest Reservation
|Description: Visitors to the reservation can observe a number of land management practices and participate in a variety of recreational activities. The mixed woodlands of oak, maple, white pine, and hemlock provide an excellent example of this part of the state’s forests. Some areas are intensively managed for timber and wildlife habitat and some areas remain wild.|
Wildlife to Watch: In early summer, the woodlands teem with bird life. In some areas, you can hear the lovely songs of veeries, hermit thrushes, and wood thrushes. Solitary vireos, black-throated green warblers, and ovenbirds inhabit the area. The brooks and ponds are home to beaver, minks, and otters. Listen for spring peepers and wood frogs in the vernal pools in early spring. Watch for evidence of porcupines, deer, moose, and red squirrels.
Other Activities: There are more than 10 miles of hiking trails and old roads. The 5-mile Trout-n-Bacon trail is of particular interest. A map and compass are recommended.
