After we left the waterfalls, we decided to continue down the road.  I spotted this old cabin.  The owner was out mowing the lawn and I asked if I could take some photos.  She said sure as long as I didn’t go inside the house.  Then she said – doesn’t the lawn look great.  I thanked her and walked all around the house taking photos.  I should have asked her if she knew any history about the old cabin.

We have been to Grafton numerous times but had never heard of the Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center so had to check it out this visit.  It’s 2,000 acres of amazing scenery, trails and grounds.  They offer swimming, hiking, mountain biking, and cross country skiing.  If you are ever in Grafton it’s well worth a visit.

Ned’s Cabin.  We decided to do a short hike at the Merck Forest  and Farmland Center – an educational nonprofit organization with a mission to teach and demonstrate innovative, sustainable management of forest and farmland.  The sign on the door says “This cabin is safe for porcupines only.  Please stay out.”   Wonder what that’s all about!
