Sprague FarmGlocester Land Trust Pine Orchard Rd. Glocester RI  02814  A 250-acre site that served as a farm and agricultural center and has been allowed to revert back to its natural state. It contains a variety of mature evergreens and hardwoods and impressive striped maples and Atlantic white cedars. It also contains a number of flowers and plants, and several beautifully constructed stone bridges that have immense capstones. It contains many stone walls and old foundations, many of them massive and still around, giving a hint of what the area was like hundreds of years ago. Within Sprague Farm there are several miles of wide dirt/gravel roads used by area farmers for generations, and several miles of narrower foot paths created by the Glocester Land Trust. Most trails have a gentle slope and visit scenic ledge vistas, stands of Striped Maple, a glacial fen, an Atlantic White Cedar wetland, several fields, miles of stone walls, stone slab bridges over several streams, the Sprague family cemetery, and stone foundation walls for barns and farmhouses. Sprague Farm is open year round from sunrise to sunset. During the fall this area is open for deer and turkey hunting. During the winter months Sprague Farm is open for snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

Steere Hill & Phillips Farm

Putnam Pike, Rte. 44 Glocester, RI The Steere Hill area is comprised of four abutting parcels acquired from 1967 to 2010 with a total of 448 acres.  Steere Hill is open year round from sunrise to sunset. During the winter months it is open for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. In warm weather Steere Hill is a popular place for horseback riding, jogging, geocaching, dog walks, and casual walks. The 68 acre Phillips Farm was the first property acquired by the GLT in 1990. Phillips Farm is an historic homestead that was known variously through the years as Phillips Farm, Cutler Farm, and Cutler’s Tavern. Before the 1920’s this farm was the Cutler Farm and the site of the historic Cutler Inn and Tollbooth. The area encompasses a variety of different habitats including wetlands, forest, and open fields. The elevation of this relatively compact parcel (approximately 68 acres) varies sufficiently so that many excellent views of the natural features are afforded over a short walk. Although most of the trees are second growth, many have reached full maturity; among them is a stand of American beech. There is also an apple orchard that is over 100 years old. The extensive streamside wetlands support a diversity of ferns and flowering plants which bloom in succession from early spring well into the summer. West of Phillips Farm is the 208 acre Steere Hill Nature Preserve acquired in 2002. During the early 20th Century, both Phillips Farm and Steere Hill were used for orchards, hayfields, woodlots, and livestock. Recently the GLT has created wildlife habitat of tall native grasses for threatened ground nesting bird species in Phillips Farm and the summit of Steere Hill. West of Steere Hill is Heritage Park, a 115 acres woodland acquired by the Town of Glocester in 1967 as part of the state’s Green Acres program. South of Heritage Park is the 57 acre LePlat Woodland acquired by the GLT in 2010. Google Map
