The property mentioned on this page is NOT the Old Briar Patch. It is the East Sandwich Game Farm Property. The eastern portion trails beyond Jabeez Dam culvert and the creek are part of the Town of Sandwich Talbot's Point Conservation Land while the majority of woodlands and meadows belong to Massachusetts Fisheries and Wildlife. A small tree plantation portion to the North is owned by Massachusetts State Forestry. The State Fisheries and Wildlife portion of this property is maintained and used for education programs by the Thornton W. Burgess Society. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed or under voice control and owners must remove their pet's waste. Waste disposal buckets are located at the main trail head off the driveway past the gate. During mid to late April and the first 2-3 weeks in June school children will be on site exploring the forest and marsh areas. In July and August children from the Burgess summer camp are on site as well. The Town of Sandwich-owned Old Briar Patch Property is located between Discovery Hill Road and Gully Lane in East Sandwich and abuts the Burgess Society's Green Briar Jam Kitchen and Nature Center property. This is about 2 miles west of the property mentioned on this page. Trail maps for the Briar Patch property are available from the Burgess Society or Town of Sandwich.
