Formerly known as Island View Farm, Slocum's River Reserve includes mature woodlands, agricultural fields, and pastures that slope down to the western bank of the Slocum's River. Two miles of trails cross the Reservation and connect to trail easements over an adjoining sixty acres of private land.

The Reservation protects more than 3,000 feet of frontage along the Slocum's River. Adjoining private farmland and pastures produce corn, alfalfa, and horticultural nursery stock and are used to graze livestock. The Trustees of Reservations and Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) jointly own and manage the property.

Two miles of trails cross the reservation and connect to trail easements over an adjoining 60 acres of private land. Easy walking.
