Inches Woods

This is a twenty-four acre parcel of mixed deciduous and coniferous wooded upland and vegetated wetland with future trailheads at Depot Road and at the end of Emanuel Road.  Based on Thoreau’s journal records of his walks in Boxborough, this land was a part of the “Inches Woods” described in Journal Nine. Trails are in development. Currently a trail leads from Depot Road to the circle in Emmanuel Road Extension (a great cut-through for people wanting to access the Joseph/Emmanuel neighborhood from Depot. Another trail is cut that will soon link with the trails in Hager.
