Description: This 83 acre conservation area was acquired by the town in 2000 as part of the Danforth Brook residential development project. Now owned by the town of Bolton, Danforth provides interestingly varied terrain and habitat to its visitors. The trail starts directly behind the two car parking area and continues adjacent to the pond. An open view from the bridge located at the pond’s northern edge is noteworthy as well as this property’s grid-like stone walls. A gas pipeline easement exists through this conservation area. Several loop trail walks are possible in Danforth, leading out to a somewhat hidden trail head east of start point. A short road walk, past the southern edge of the pond brings you back to trail head parking area. Trails in this property can be rocky and require agility.
The trail was improved and marked by Eagle Scout Peter Scott in 2013.
