Where is the Short Property?
The Short Property is a 38-acre tract of land located off Scamman Road and adjacent to the back of the Barker Farm and near the Gordon Barker Town Forest.

When hiking or biking along the wonderful trail system in the Town Forest and Park, you may not even have realized that you have crossed onto the Short property, where the Shorts have graciously built trails and allowed public access.
