The property is covered with mostly hardwood tree species and also contains a portion of Mountain Brook. This is the same brook that flows through CLT's Charmichael Sanctuary (Day #9) further upstream. After passing through Carroll Woods, Mountain Brooks meets up with Willow Brook along the Farmington Canal Linear Trail.
The Carroll Woods Preserve provides excellent woodland habitat adjacent to the Brooksvale Farm's open fields. CLT's ownership also ensures protection for a portion of Mountain Brook. This CLT preserve is not open to the public.
