Welcome to "Holt's Grove"
This trail, located next to the Marlborough High School, loops through a predominantly deciduous forest of oak with red maple in the wetter areas. The stream from the pond eventually runs into Fort Meadow Reservoir. The pond and its surrounding vegetation are full of life! Many aquatic insects and other invertebrates can be found in the pond as well as several species of frog. We hope that you will explore the pond and stream systems as well as the woodland area’s variety of microhabitats.
