Welcome to Cider Knoll!!
This parcel of conservation land is mainly wooded and full of life!  The entire property consists of 105.4 acres and the total mileage of trails here is approximately 2 miles.The loop trail runs along scenic rock outcroppings, one of which overlooks the pond on the south end of the property.  This parcel is an ideal spot for bird watching as the pond and the bordering wetland area provide for a rich wildlife habitat.  Various waterfowl have been spotted here along with birds such as the great blue heron and the belted kingfisher.  Reptile and amphibian wildlife are also common here.  Some mammal species that have been spotted on the trails include white tailed deer, beaver, fisher, wild turkeys, as well as signs of raccoon and coyote.

This parcel also adjoins several historical homesteads on Concord and Stow Roads.  These were owned by some of the original settlers of Marlborough.  Portions of the landscape were once open fields and a small apple orchard.
