The Towner Hill Preserve features impressive glacial erratics. These massive boulders were left behind at the end of the last ice age. This is a more challenging hike, there is a steep incline along a boulder field that gives geology enthusiasts plenty of reasons to pause, admire, and rest. A pair of glacial erratics marks the top of the climb. The rolling loop along the top of the hills offers beautiful views to the East after the leaves fall. In the early sping, the vernal pools host many species frogs, toads, and salamanders.

This land was preserved in 2008 with support from a Highlands Grant and an Open Space grant. Towner Hill is almost adjacent to Irene’s Woods, although no formal trail system connects them currently.
