West Meadow Road

West Meadow Conservation Land offers a unique scenic landscape within the city of Lowell.  This property is rich in biodiversity and provides a trail linking the surrounding neighborhood with access to the nearby Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsborough State Forest.  As you enter West Meadow via the access point at its north end during summer months, you are in awe of a full fern glade (at left), beneath a tall canopy of white pine trees.
