While the office may be closed, the foundation's walking trails are open. Walking outside is good for your health and can provide solace during this difficult time. We hope that time on the trails helps our community to stay happy and healthy.

Featured Property - Frost Fish Creek

Don't know where to start exploring? How about Frost Fish Creek:

CCF acquired all of the almost 50 acres that now protect Frost Fish Creek over a span of 33 years. The 1.1 mile walking trail meanders along the eastern edge of Frost Fish Creek offering walkers glimpses of an old cranberry operation which has reverted into open wetlands. As you walk along the high trail, borrow pits for sanding the bogs appear on either side of the path. With its unique configuration featuring a brackish-freshwater tidal wetland over upland Pine/Oak woodlands, this area offers the most varied and numerous opportunities to experience seasonal bird and mammal life in our area.

From the traffic light in North Chatham, travel 0.7 mile north on Route 28. The entrance to the trail is a dirt road on the left. Parking is available.
