Just off of Route 152, the Leach Sanctuary is a wooded parcel with a series of trails. The property has a small pond on it, a large puddingstone outcrop simply known as Big Rock, and a few stone walls. Unfortunately, the trails on the adjacent property to the south of the sanctuary no longer exist due to residential development. Therefore, a loop cannot be completed as shown on the provided map. Exploring all the trails though, one could easily manage to walk a mile or more here.
