Ridgewood reservation is aptly named, as it consists of a north-south ridge that extends to the hills of Brewer Reservation. The property is located between High Street and neighborhood residences on the south and Brewer Reservation and Hobart Street on the north. Adjoining Brewer Reservation, Cassidy Field (HRC), 8.4 acres surrounded by white pines, includes a baseball field. A ridge trail, through much of the property, connects the Brewer Reservation to High Street. The trails are surrounded by pine trees, whose needles provide a comfortable walking surface. In addition to the north south ridge there is an esker like ridge crossing the trail about a quarter mile from High Street. It appears that the ridge top trail and the crossing ridge form the dividing line between the Back River watershed to the northwest and the Weir River watershed (Plymouth River and Tower Brook) to the south and east. In addition to the esker-like ridges there are other remnants of the ice age such as glacial erratics, large stones moved by melting glaciers and left spread out on the earth’s surface and Roxbury Puddingstone, a rock that is filled with small stones.
Ridgewood Reservation (HCC), land donated in conjunction with the development of Ridgewood Crossing in 2010, has a trail along a forested ridge and a small pond (Snake Pond). There is access off Hobart Street through Brewer Reservation between Blue Sky Drive and the transfer station with limited parking on the southside of Hobart Street and a parking lot on the northside of the street. There is also access at the entrance between 249 and 255 High Street, with parking on the side of the entrance way. There is neighborhood access via a trail between 15 and 19 White Horse Road.
