Although you wouldn’t know it based on the remote location, this reservation is situated in historic Medfield. Noon Hill and the surrounding rock ledge are the result of glacial action that carved depressions in the earth’s surface thousands of years ago. Today, the surrounding landscape encompasses marsh and higher-elevation forest within minutes all on the same route. You’ll be passing through a mix of deciduous trees with some grand pines in the mix. Since the habitat is favorable for ruffed grouse, you are likely to be startled by the sudden burst of this bird’s fluttering wings if you approach one along the trail.
