Inland Pine Barrens

Glacial outwash creates an unusual inland sandplain habitat of pitch pine (Pinus rigida) and scrub oak (Quercus ilicifolia) amidst forest and wetland in this 600-acre area known as “The Desert.” Come observe this special plant community and its associated wildlife while learning about efforts to restore fire-dependent sandplain habitats through prescribed burns. This easy hike will also feature red pine and black huckleberry.
