Just opposite pole number 54 along Winsor Road, is the trailhead to one of Foster Land Trust’s newest blazed trail systems. The property consists of three blazed trails, the yellow blazed Hayfield Trail, the blue blazed Pasture Trail, and the aptly named orange blazed Rocky Trail. The property also has several unmarked trails that reach into the nearby D.E.M. Property. The ruins of a mill and the nearby stone walls are a highlight near the Ponagansett River. There is also a large open field among the forest of maples, oaks, and beech trees scattered with boulders. Hunting is allowed on nearby properties, wearing orange is advisable during hunting season.
