Popular recreational activities in this area include mountain biking, trail running and snowshoeing.The Dyer-Hutchinson 50-acre conservation easement was donated by Thomas L.

The house is protected by a historical preservation easement and portions of the property are managed for sustainable forestry and as a commercial cut-your-own Christmas tree farm.
