In every walk with nature one receives far more than (s)he seeks.

~ John Muir 

Basket Swamp, formerly known as Sandywoods, is a 96-acre forest purchased in July 2009 from Dr. Joseph Bossom and Mika Seeger. The land will be kept as forested open space that will allow a trail system for public access limited to passive recreation. The woods are highly scenic and visible to the public along 385 feet of frontage on Bulgarmarsh Road and an additional 2,500 feet of frontage along Cornell Road. It follows the stream corridor of Adamsville Brook, a principal tributary of the West Branch of the Westport River.
