About Cormier Woods
Cormier Woods lies within the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, a designated area extending from Worcester to Providence that celebrates the historical and cultural importance of the river, the birthplace of America’s Industrial Revolution. Easy-to-moderate intensity trails wind through open meadow and along stone walls, opening up a quintessential 1800s New England agricultural landscape and small-scale farmstead, replete with a historic house, barn, and a blueberry patch that ripens in late summer.

Five miles of connected loop trails pass through easy-to-moderate terrain, including pastures, woodlands, and a boulder field. Pass beneath evergreens and hardwood species including oaks, maple, and birch. Oaks are dominant: you’ll pass several species, each with distinct leaves and acorns, especially as you venture away from the farmstead.

On the one-and-a-half-mile loop trail leading toward the reservation’s northwest border, look for groves of 80-to-100-foot white pines. Listen for bluebirds at field edges, warblers in the thickets, and melodious thrushes, their flute-like song echoing across the woodlands. You’ll also wander through fields of native grasses and flowers, and, deeper into the woods, past brooks and giant boulders, rock outcrops, and cellar holes.
