The Jim and Evalyn Hornig Natural Area at Lower Slade Brook is a 36-acre conservation area, offering a quiet retreat with easy walking terrain next to Slade Brook. From Moose Mountain to its mouth at River Road on the Connecticut River, Slade Brook’s banks are undeveloped and graced by convenient hiking trails through varied forestland. The Conservancy’s protection of this property ensures that Lower Slade Brook will always be a pristine environment for people to enjoy and where native flora and fauna can flourish.

Currently connections to other trails in the area are not maintained.
