This Richmond Rural Preservation Land Trust property made for a nice and quiet after work hike. I followed the main blue blazed trail into the property from the small parking area on Gardiner Road. Following the blue trail as it wandered through the heavily wooded terrain slightly up and down hills crossing streams and old stone walls, it eventually came to the Hanging Rock. This is a rather large outcrop of rock that looks as if it is hanging over the edge of a hill. On the way back towards the car, I followed the yellow loop that had a natural stone crossing of a stream. There were no sightings of wildlife, however I did see a frog and came across several mushrooms.
