Chebacco Woods

(also known as Gordon Woods)

Thanks to a great many private donors, the Massachusetts Division of Conservation Services, the towns of Hamilton and Manchester-by-the-Sea, and a coalition of nonprofits including Essex County Greenbelt, Hamilton-Wenham Open Land Trust, Manchester Conservation Trust, and the Trust for Public Lands, the public now owns this outstanding 113 acre parcel as conservation land. Along with an additional 100 acres in Manchester and new public trail access to the intervening 250 acre parcel of Manchester watershed land, this makes a new permanent greenbelt over three miles long -- a rare event in this day and age. Many miles of fine trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, etc.

The Chebacco Woods Land Management Committee with representation from Hamilton and Manchester is continuing to oversee access and maintenance. Contact the Hamilton Conservation Commission for details.
