This KMZ map encompasses two small conservation parcels (one atop Spindle Hill and one just north of Wheeler Pond) that are joined by a 25 foot wide strip of conservation land. The 25 foot wide strip of conservation land continues north of Spindle Hill to Gates Lane. Although at first glance this area seems like it isn't large enough to deserve a KMZ map, recent reports indicate the trail is overgrown and not easily found. This KMZ map may help you to stay on the public land and avoid the private land of the abutting homeowners.
This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 35 so it will show 'beneath' the primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS but 'above' my KMZ map of the Marble Hill area.
The image on the left is from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc with no other maps displayed. The image on the right is from the same device with the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.
I have posted this KMZ as freeware, so instead of paying me for it, send me a note if you found this file helpful!

NOTE: This is my calculation of the extents of the area(s) with publicly accessible trails on the KMZ map. This should be the area available for hiking or other recreation, but it will also include any portion of water bodies, marshes, swamps, etc. within the boundaries of the properties on the KMZ. It would also include inaccessible conservation land within the boundaries, such as a buffer zone of "Do not enter" land around a reservoir.
