The 30-acre Ahl Memorial Forest in Kingston—donated to the Southeast Land Trust in 2006—is a classic mix of pine, oak and hemlock forest dotted with swamps and vernal pools. A few small ridges run through the otherwise flat property, probably created by retreating glaciers 12,000 years ago. Stone walls cross here and there—remnants of 19th century pastureland now reclaimed by the forest.
A network of footpaths allow visitors to walk and cross country ski on the property, which is open for public access. Snowmobiling on designated trails is permitted. Motorized wheeled vehicles are prohibited.
