Leslie C. Bockes Memorial Forest
Trails on the forested part of the property north of Bockes Road wind through an oak-pine forest that shows off good forest management at its best. Note how the forester has ensured that each crop tree has space to develop a full crown, thus maximizing its growth. The hill on the northwestern side of the property offers views to the southwest at times when leaves are not present on the hardwoods. Because this property is an island of habitat within a mosaic of suburbs, it has become a refuge for small mammals. Look for signs of fox, fisher, coyote, raccoon, and weasel. For leaf-peeping close to home, this property, with long views down its woods roads, is an excellent choice.
