The entrance to this Glocester Land Trust property is just about across the street from where the Cemetery Trail of Sprague Farm comes out onto Joe Sweet Road. In fact this lesser known trail system would make a good addition to a hike at Sprague Farm. The main trail is a wide cart path that is covered in pine needles and heads in a southerly direction. The trail passes a narrower trail and a cellar hole to the left before heading onto private property. The narrower trail loops crossing over a small babbling brook. The brook could be impassable after heavy rains as it is quite deep at the trail crossing. There is also another narrow trail that seems to dead end toward private property as well. The trail system is probably about a mile to a mile and a half in total. I did some backtracking while exploring this property giving me a little more mileage.
