The Essex Land Trust invites all to visit its newest property, Doanes’ Woods, on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 9 a.m. It is a large, flat, wooded area that drops steeply to the east and adjoins the James Glen Preserve. The two properties combined represent 21 acres and include trails that connect with each other. Doane’s Woods was acquired in 2016 and includes a wooded ravine with creek, rock outcroppings, and tulip trees, as well as other deciduous trees. This is a great winter hike to explore some local geological features with the trust’s stewards. Entrance is at the end of Navy Lane, which is accessed from Book Hill Road in Essex.
