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.

While the property upon which Holcomb Farm sits is owned by the Town of Granby, many of the activities that take place here -- including our Farm Store, our CSA, Fresh Access, and trail maintenance are take care of by volunteers, under the direction of the Friends of Holcomb Farm. We rely on donations and grant dollars to fund our trail maintenance activities. Please consider supporting these efforts.
