Did you know that for many cultures the spirit of the forest is usually found dwelling in the very oldest, most gnarled white pine tree, known as the Grandmother tree? Come meet the Grandmother of Horton Woods and learn about the secrets of the other trees that inhabit this beautiful 100 acre preserve. This parcel is comprised of a diverse variety of ecological habitats including mature upland forest, fields, marsh, stream vernal pools and wetland and is part of Saco Bay Trails. The hike is approximately 3.5 miles and we will meet at the trailhead located at 464 Buxton Road in Saco.
