This is a fun Wells Conservation Commission preserve to walk, probably nicer to ski — especially if you take advantage of the old railroad tracks that pass close to or through this 288-acre preserve. When I visited in the winter of 2017, the place wasn’t terribly well marked, although I found a lovely loop trail marked with fluorescent pink flags. I hope I was still on the preserve! It really wasn’t clear. There were lots of x-c ski tracks here, and they went off and away down the RR tracks.
Directions: Turn onto Thompson Road from Perry Oliver Road. Park at the end of the cul-de-sac.
