The Mill Hill property is part of the Beaver Brook green belt. The land, partly wooded and partly cleared, rises from Beaver Brook to the top of the hill.
The trails pass through mature oak woodlands. Beaver Brook borders the area but is difficult to reach because of thick undergrowth. The land is not well known and shows little use. Unfortunately, the noise level is very high from nearby Route I-495.Acreage: 24.4
Mill Hill (the Stewart Land) was purchased by the Town of Littleton in 1965 for conservation and recreational purposes. It was procured by a unanimous vote of the Town by transferring money from the Conservation funds.
Many years ago, the hillside was covered with majestic pines and was dotted with summer rental cottages that extended down to a sandy beach on Mill Pond. All that remains today are two fieldstone chimneys that can be seen among the trees part way up the hill. Access to the pond was cut off by the construction of Route 495.
