Essex Land Trust properties are open sunrise to sunset and we encourage everyone to enjoy these open spaces. Many have trails and we only ask that a few simple rules be followed. Please do not hunt, camp, bike, make fires, smoke, use motorized vehicles, remove or destroy plants. Dogs are welcome. However, dogs must be on leash or under owner's control at all times. Be respectful of other walkers and please clean up after your pet.
