I just got back from a walk with Lad on The Snake Meadow Brook trail. It is accessible from Gould road which in turn is off Groton road. The trail follows Snake Meadow Brook and I went in thinking that the brook might be beautiful with ice and snow. It is — please see above.
The trail is short but very interesting and ends at a glacial ledge that over looks the brook and woods. Lots of what look to me like glacial erractics as well. Give the trail a try next time you want a nice short hike in Westford.
(This trail is maintained by the Westford Conservation Trust. Many thanks to Lenny Palmer, Bill Harman and any others who may have helped for clearing the trail.)
