Description Shared by Deep River and Essex, Canfield/Meadow Woods Nature Preserve is made up of more than 300 acres of hilly, forested land with a wide variety of terrain. Seventeen trails wind through mixed old and new growth forest, and the preserve’s many rocky outcroppings are a highlight. Much of the property is former farm land and the old fields are still delineated by a network of stone walls and roads. The remains of an old stone quarry can be found in the Deep River section. Most of the original land was acquired through donations by Mr. and Mrs. Earl Canfield in 1968 and The Nature Conservancy in 1985. The preserve abounds with white-tailed deer and grey and red fox as well as flocks of wild turkeys. A population of small rodents attracts hawks and owls. Home to a variety of birds, common species seen here include cardinals, woodpeckers, thrushes, vireos and flycatchers. In Essex – Book Hill Woods Road, Dennison Road and Eagle Ridge Drive. In Deep River – Route 154.
