Property Description 

The Ewell Reservation consists of old field, and young and mature white pine stands. The open field is leased to the Rowley Riding and Driving Club, which maintains the field in return for the use of the property. This upland is situated next to Upper Mill Pond, part of the Mill River system.


Special Features

The Ewell Reservation is a prime location to enjoy the splendor and beauty of waterfowl during the spring migration when the ducks are courting. Wild rice, smartweed and other wetland plants offer a tasty food source for these birds. Bring your binoculars!

If you visit in spring in the twilight hours of dawn and dusk, there is a chance you may see otters at the trail edges around the pond.


Parking is limited to two cars. Turn in and park along either side of the driveway, taking care not to block the gate.
