The Garbry Big Woods Sanctuary is a .7-mile boardwalk loop through an undisturbed wet beech-maple forest. The 100-acre site is not connected to the Reserve, but can be reached by driving a short distance north from the Reserve entrance and turning west on Statler Road. The Sanctuary has a prolific spring flower display and a colorful autumn show. Plants and trees are labeled making the hike educational as well as pleasurable. A boardwalk guides the visitor through woodland habitat helping to preserve the sensitive and rare plant community, and making the Sanctuary handicapped accessible.
