Red Acre is a parcel of conservation land in Stow MA that was purchased by the Stow Conservation Trust in 2002. Although some hiking across or along roads is required, a continuous hike can easily be made from the Gardner Hill conservation area, through Red Acre, into the Capt. Sargent Farm Conservation Area.

Screenshots

This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 45 so it will show 'beneath' the primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS. It is also designed to show 'on top' of the following KMZ maps from my collection of local KMZ maps:
Captain Sargent Farm Conservation Area 
Heath Hen - Flagg Hill
Gardner Hill
Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge

 

The image on the left is from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc with no other maps displayed. The image on the right is from the same device with the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.
