From the Department of Planning and Economic Development:
Easton boasts over 4,000 acres of Conservation Land comprising several large management areas. Several of these management areas offer well defined walking trails through a variety of natural resource regimes that include deeply forested areas, wet meadows, red maple swamps, sweeping pond and grassland vistas and scrub oak / pitch pine forests.
