The name Blue Cut Nature Trails dates back to 1853 when a cut was made through the drumlin while building a nearby railroad. The Vernon Shale had a bluish cast when exposed. Today, this wildlife refuge covers over forty acres. A one hour hike would cover the 1.5 miles of loop trails. The blue marked Time Study Trail begins in a planted 20 year old pine forest, then climbs a drumlin formed 11,000 years ago by glaciers. The green marked Forestry Trail leads through the pine plantation. The orange marked Wildlife Trail exhibits various habitats including a wetland, woods, field and mowed grass strips.
