Burton Woodland

Burton SignThis area of nearly 112 acres abuts both Sprague Farm and Robert Huckins Woodland, and is located on Joe Sweet Road. Many of the trees have reached full maturity; among these is an impressive stand of Striped Maple. Dotted with streams and ponds, the area features a variety of habitats for both plants and animals, including the Blackthroated Blue Warbler, long thought to be extinct in Rhode Island.

Within this three-site area a pristine glacial fen and other wetland support many flowering plants which bloom in succession from early spring through fall. At three different locations, these trails cross permanent streams via beautifully constructed stone bridges. The immense capstones of these structures are testament to the skill and ambition of the early settlers.

There are marked and maintained trails on this property for recreation.

Please follow the rules and regulations of the Glocester Land Trust while visiting this property.

Directions: This area may be reached through the Sprague Farm entrance. Head west on Route 44 and continue approximately 2 miles from northern junction of Routes 44 and 102 in Chepachet; left onto Pine Orchard Road.
