Once part of a 500-acre estate built by nineteenth-century industrialist Moses Stevens, this route encompasses a distinct mix of wide-open meadow views of Lake Cochichewick and dense forest bordering the water’s edge. This reservation was named after the fish weirs (woven fences) that natives used in nearby Cochichewick Brook to trap fish swimming toward the lake.
