Jericho Preserve

Directions. The Jericho Preserve property ( 50 acres) is reached by the  Boston Post Road turning onto Whippoorwill Road. About one mile on the left just before you cross the bridge over Bucky Brook (Blackhall River), there is a driveway that leads to a house, in which is located the office of the OLCT. A trail begins behind the house.

Map it?

Trail. The trail follows a wood road in a northerly direction parallel to Bucky Brook for about a quarter mile. It then turns to the left at the boundary line and follows the boundary line to the top of the ridge that runs north and south. The trail follows the top of this ridge in a southerly direction for about a quarter mile where it enters a valley with a wood road that leads to the left back to the trail at which you began.

The trail is not completed or properly marked at this time. The total distance is about a mile. Views from the ridge are dramatic and there are two or three vernal pools. Unfortunately, almost all the large hemlock trees on the property are dead or dying. The walk takes about an hour.
