Destruction Brook Woods is Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust’s largest Reserve and offers a variety of walks along what remains of the old Duff estate’s bridle paths. The 280-acre property was purchased in 2000 by Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust and The Trustees of Reservations. (The Trustees subsequently transferred their ownership interest to DNRT.) The Trustees and the Town of Dartmouth co-hold a conservation restriction on the Reserve, and the Dartmouth Conservation Commission owns an adjoining 44-acre parcel at the north end of the property.
The property includes miles of walking trails, mature woodlands that include American Beech and Atlantic White Cedar, unusual rock ledges covered with many interesting ferns and lichens, and Destruction Brook itself, once a major source of power for the mills of Russell’s Mills.
