This magnificent 255-acre wooded ravine stretches from north of Black Rock Road to the New Jersey border. A stream called Fuller's Brook runs the length of the preserve. Frogs, toads and salamanders live in the wetlands around the stream. The woods are home to many mammals (including long-tailed weasel and black bear), several unusual plants, and an abundance of bird life.
