ricker preserve


Ricker Preserve is a .81-acre parcel of wooded land located on Pequot Trail, across from Bill’s Tractor Service.  It was donated to the Land Trust, on January 19, 2016, by Judith L. Keith, Robin A. Ricker and Alan Ricker, heirs of the Gladys P. Ricker estate.

The preserve has 437-feet of road frontage on Pequot Trail, and 180-feet of frontage along Anguilla Brook.  Over the years, this small parcel has been a popular fishing spot for local fishermen.  Fishing continues to be welcome, in season, dawn to dusk.

Preserve Access: Bill’s Tractor Service is on the corner of Pequot Trail and Anguilla Brook Road. To access the preserve for fishing, park on Anguilla Brook Road;  walk across Pequot Trail; go west approximately 450-feet to the bridge, over Anguilla Brook.  You may enter the preserve there.  Please be cautious walking along busy Pequot Trail; thank you.
