Shelterwood Trail, Hart Farm (Holden)

I hiked the Shelterwood Trail at Hart Farm after work yesterday.  The trail descends from the parking lot on Copeland Hill Road, passing an open field before entering woods.   It then parallels a stream before climbing a hill and descending in a loop.  

The Holden Land Trust has been installing new log bridges that help route the trail across wet and grassy areas.  Some sections of the trail are grassy, so appropriate tick precautions should be followed.  The property contains a large number of downed trees 

Overall this was a good trail for a quick workout close to Bangor.  The trail is 1.5 miles roundtrip with options to extend into the adjacent Fields Pond preserve.
