Alewive Woods Preserve
The crown jewel of KLT properties, this preserve boasts over 625 acres of land and a 45-acre pond at its center, and is ideal for mixed recreational uses. The forested, scrub pine parcel provides habitat to a variety of wildlife; trails meander through a red pine plantation that was re-vegetated after the fires of 1947. Originally planned as the second phase of Alewive Farms residential development, the property was conserved by the Trust in 1990. Blueberry picking in summer, some wildflowers present in spring.
