Whitbeck Memorial Grove(New Scotland)

Visited The Nature Conservancy's 30 acre Whitbeck Memorial Grove located in the town of New Scotland this afternoon.  The trail head is found .7 miles west of the 85/ 85A junction and just beyond the railroad tracks on the left.  There is a designated parking area a short distance past the preserve sign and kiosk.
The trail is awash in fallen leaves and is well marked on its way through two woodlots.
 The trail crosses a powerline corridor and divides the preserve in two.
 A view towards a large lawn at the preserve's boundary.
 Came across this old relic.
 The trail forms a 1.2 mile loop and is well marked. 
The sounds of trains rushing by from the nearby tracks can be heard through the quiet November woods.  Overall, a nice spot to stretch your legs for a pleasant woods walk.  One side note:  Dogs are not allowed at the preserve.
