The wildflower meadow at Questing is breathtaking.

The Trustees’ 438-acre Questing property in New Marlborough has an intriguing mix of history and nature. Located on and about Leffingwell Hill, you enter up a woods road, come out on a 17-acre wildflower meadow, and then re-enter the woods to complete a 2-mile tour, passing a high point at 1,485 feet, stone walls, and cellar holes of the former farm.
