Powisset Farm, Dover, MA 02030

Location Information

A working farm owned and stewarded by the Trustees of Reservations, Powisset Farm is a small parcel in the southeast corner of a wealthy rural suburb of Boston. Powisset Farm operates as a co-op type farm. Trails at Powisset Farm connect to the Hale Reservation. The much larger Noanet Woodlands is very close by. 

NOTE from the Trustees of Reservations: An electric deer fence is maintained around all of our cultivated fields. Please assume that the fence is on at all times.

Screenshots

This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 45 so it will show 'beneath' the primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS.  It will show 'above' my KMZ map of Hale Reservation and also 'above' my KMZ map of the Noanet Woodlands. Loading all three KMZ maps will provide you with a seamless trail map of all properties on your GPSr. See the links above to view all three maps together.

The image on the left below 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.
