This hike starts at the extreme northeasterly corner of the parking lot at Tucker Field across from the Cumberland High School. You will notice a red blaze on a post. First follow the red blazed trail. Just after the power lines the red blazed trail turns to the right, continue straight onto the white blazed trail. This trail winds through the Scott Brook Preserve passing several small streams. At the end of the white trail stay to the right and follow the red blazes for a little bit until you see the blue blazed trail on the left and ahead. Here at this intersection is one of the properties highlights. It is a corn crib, a large metal silo. Next, follow the blue blazes up and over a significant hill and into the meadow. Here are several birdhouses that are built to attract bluebirds. From here retrace your steps along the blue trail. You will see the red blazed trail once again to the left. Follow it back to Tucker Field.
