More about Gavel Family Farm Preserve
With a peak elevation of 870 feet and broad expanses of gently rolling meadows, the Gavel Family Farm Preserve commands stunning views to the south, east and west. Walkers may enjoy a perimeter path around the edge of working farmland during the growing season. The yellow trail on the east side connects to the Lilly Preserve, with a picnic table and viewing platform of meadow habitat.
The Roxbury Land Trust acquired the preserve with the help of Frank Gavel in 2001 as part of the “Save Our Farms” campaign.
