Main Trail Torrence Barrens


The main trail circles Highland Pond, which is a relatively large shallow pond surrounded by floating fen mats that provide habitat for several species of orchids including the white fringed orchid, rose pogonia and Calopogon.

A large intermediate fen extends off the western end of the pond. This sedge dominated wetland provides a field habitat for Vesper sparrow, Savannah sparrow and bobolink.
