Welcome to Our Trails

Spend an hour or an afternoon. Holcomb Farm encompasses more than 300 acres of farmland, rolling hills, meadows, woodland, and clear brooks. Situated between Granby Land Trust properties and the McLean Game Refuge, Holcomb Farm helps form a significant area of open space and protected land in Granby.

The trails are open to the public daily from dawn to dusk, 365 days a year. Some trails have moderate elevation gains.  Hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and horseback riding are encouraged. Bicycles and motorized vehicles are prohibited. All trails are marked by colored blazes. Horses are allowed on all trails and additional horse trails are marked by white dots. Horses are not allowed on trail bridges.
