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