Oak Hill Beagle Club & Town Forest Trail

This 90-acre property consists of both upland forests and wetlands and supports ecologically significant habitat. It abuts an 18-acre parcel of Town forest, land designated by the Town to be devoted to the culture of forest trees.

Public Access

The Oak Hill Beagle Club is private and not open to the public. A small parking area on Fairview Ave allows public access to the easement to the Town Forest. Hunting is not allowed on the easement, but it is allowed in the Town Forest. Visitors (and their dogs) are encouraged to wear blaze orange during hunting season.

Project/Property Background

Oak Hill Beagle Club wanted to see the property remain in its current open and natural state for continued use as a beagle club and the town wanted to preserve this large swath of upland woods and wetlands.

Conservation Purposes

The Rehoboth Conservation Commission and the Rehoboth Land Trust jointly hold a conservation restriction to protect the property and a perpetual trail easement to allow access to the town forest.

Land Owner/Funding Partners

The land is owned by the Oakhill Beagle Club with a conservation restriction jointly held by the Rehoboth Land Trust and the Rehoboth Conservation Commission. The project was funded in partnership with the Rehoboth Land Trust, the Rehoboth Conservation Commission, the Rehoboth Community Preservation Committee, the Rehoboth Agricultural and Natural Resources Preservation Council, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, The Trustees of Reservations, and the Oak Hill Beagle Club.
