Description

Named for the large glacial erratic shaped in the form of a toad on the northeast portion of the property, thought to be a pet toad of the mythical chieftain Moshup that turned to stone upon his departure. Densely woven scrub oak and undulating topography characterize this property. At one end of the preserve, buried in the thick vegetation, is the erratic; at the other end is Surveyors Hill, with its views of Squibnocket Pond and beyond to Noman’s Island.

Start at the intersection of the State Road and Moshup Trail.  Proceed down the Moshup Trail 0.8 miles and turn right at the land bank logo sign.
