Skofield Conservation Area

October 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm Leave a comment


The 30 acres comprising the Skofield Conservation Area were donated to the Town of New Boston from the Skofield family estate.

This beautiful conservation area has an entrance on Clark Hill Road adjacent to Lot 1 at the eastern edge of the Clark Hill Woods property. There is also an entrance on Briar Hill Road with a small parking lot.

The property is maintained to provide habitat for wildlife and to preserve open space. Through volunteer effort, a trail was built through the area. This area consists of gently rolling slopes. Wooded and open areas provide opportunities for all seasonal activity including snowshoeing, x-country skiing, hiking, and skating.

Migrating ducks visit the wetland area. Walkers can find easy walking in any season.

Located near the Town center, the on-site parking makes it easily accessible.

The Conservation Areas require seasonal maintenance. The Commission invites New Boston residents and others to join us in this work. Please contact the Conservation Commission if you are interested.
