About the Chessey Preserve Trails
The property is wild and relatively pristine woodland area. The trail is easily accessible from Hancock Pond Road and is a short half-mile to the undeveloped shore of Browns Pond. Parts are rocky and—depending on the time of year—muddy. The forest is a mix of hemlocks, pine and birch, and as the trail opens up on the shore, clear views of all sections of the pond including the marshy north end. Please note: snowmobiles and motorized vehicles are NOT allowed on this property.
Chessey Preserve is an easement property with public access.
