The Hastings Memorial Forest is part of a greenway lying east of Route 89 in Ashford. Beyond the perennial Bebbington Brook, which flows through this parcel towards the Mt. Hope River, the land ascends into an upland plateau that is divided by several colonial stone walls. Deer and turkeys can be spotted amongst the mixed, semi-mature hardwoods that have grown on the land that formerly served as pastures in the Tumbling Brook Farm.
