About the Hike:
The Nature Conservancy's Wales Preserve is the perfect place for a nice, quiet walk through the woods. The Brookside Trail takes you across the length of the preserve by a bubbling brook called the Gridley River. As you walk along, you will pass many small and pretty cascades. On the way back, take the Woodland Trail for a scenic forest walk.
