A network of trails through farmland and a flood plain forest. Some areas are an active Winooski River backwater (floods every year). Excellent views of the Winooski River; the Hilltop View trail looks out over Mt. Mansfield and Camel's Hump. Trail network includes two circular trails, one through the upper and one through the lower meadow; here the trails are a wide mowed swath.
This land, approximately 160 acres, was originally farmed by the Macrae sisters. Today an old town road that used to run through the property exists as a footpath.

From Burlington, take Route 127 North to Colchester. Turn right at the intersection of 127/Macrae Road/Porter's Point Road. Follow Macrae Road to the end of the road which will eventually turn to dirt, cross over the small bridge, and park in the designated parking area (ADA-accessible). The meadow and river trails start here and the Hilltop Trail starts back across the bridge and to the right.
