Our Bushy Hill and Platt Preserves are a local gem. The preserve is fully wooded and hugs the Falls River in the southern part of the Platt Property. There are a lot of interesting features including a mountain laurel maze, foot bridges, and a cascade on the Falls River.
All of our hikes are family friendly. Dogs are permitted and must be kept on leash.
