More directions and information

Ward Reservation is an emerald quilt of fields, forests, and uplands, stitched together from more than 40 distinct parcels across three hills--Shrub, Boston, and Holt. Looking out from their summits, you can see how the property melds with the surrounding landscape. On top of Holt Hill, the highest point in Essex County, you'll find the "Solstice Stones," a compass-like arrangement of stones set up to mark the sunset on the longest and shortest days of the year.
