Tucked off Route One, the Ice Pond Trail loops through 76 acres of woodlands, wetlands, and undisturbed wildlife habitat. Forest creatures—fox, deer, fisher, raccoons, bear, even moose—have been spotted. There are stands of white birch, alder, black spruce and more. With some blueberry patches, a cranberry bog, and wild strawberries, there’s a cornucopia of fruit for wildlife. CNLT named it The Ice Pond Preserve in honor of its pond, which once provided ice for folks living in this area.
Located near the Pettengill Preserve and the Old Pond Railway Trail, the Ice Pond Property is in line with our vision of local conservation in the area and fits perfectly with our mission: providing as many opportunities as possible for people to get out onto the land while preserving corridors of undeveloped land for wildlife habitat and protecting the area’s rural heritage.
