West Dayton Hill

The West Dayton Hill property is now easily accessible thanks to the work of Boy Scout Chris Martin. For his Eagle Project, Chris created a 1 mile Lollipop trail which starts at Fox Run Drive. The trail heads along our narrow access corridor then open to form a loop scaling the trap rock ridge, which is the main feature of the property.

The property now has a second loop trail created by Boy Scout Graham Page of Troop 4 as his Eagle Project. The trail is a loop trail starting off the existing Martin's trail. The trail follows along the top of a trap rock ridge. It then descends the ridge heading back along the bottom and next to a cedar swamp.
