Skyline Farm, a non-profit organization, maintains a sleigh museum and trail network on this 54 acre historic farm property. The trails at Skyline Farm are open to non-motorized uses year round. A 2 mile loop has been largely completed and is marked. It passes along the highest hill of the farm’s hayfields before plunging into the woods where it crosses a tributary of Toddy Brook and passes through mixed growth groves of trees. One of the stream crossings includes a timber-framed king truss bridge built as part of an Eagle Scout project. Skyline’s woods, trails, and fields are protected by a conservation easement held by the Royal River Conservation Trust since 2002. A tributary of the Royal River flows through the farm, and a second tributary borders the property. The property sits atop the aquifer that provides drinking water to Yarmouth and North Yarmouth.
Skyline’s farmland is leased to a private farm operator, and either the private farm operator or Skyline’s facilities often hosts summer agricultural programs for kids.
