  1. Wiessner Woods: Located on Edson Hill Rd in Stowe, this property contains a mature hardwood and softwood forest including species like hemlock, spruce, white pine, maple, beech and birch. Trails on this property are open for walking, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. See if you can find the Gnome Home out on the trails!
  2. Mill Trail: Located on Notchbrook Road in Stowe, the Mill Trail property has a unique cabin built in Moravian style. Open houses with our Summer Naturalist will be held here during the summer and are a great way to learn more about the natural and cultural history of the land.
