Several trails exist to connect Krashes field with Bullock Road. The trails are primarily through the woods between the two points. Some key features of the trails include high esker on the Krashes Field side, and a lovely view of Mt. Wachusett from the McElroy fields on the Bullock Road side.

In November of 1995, PLT received a gift of 18 wooded acres fronting on Bullock Lane. The property was given in memory of Mrs. Vera Bullock by her three children. Until she married and moved to Ohio, Mrs. Bullock spent several months each year at the summer home of her father, Chandler Bullock.

In the spring of 1996, Nancy Bullock gave PLT 35.7 acres of rolling woodland on Bullock Lane, in memory of her husband, Richard Bullock, and in thanksgiving for 50 summers in Princeton.

The properties include fields and wooded sections, with natural springs providing some wet areas even in the driest months, making the land attractive for wooded ferns, flowering plants and wildlife as well as upland species. In addition to it's beautiful forest, the Bullock Land includes fine eskers that reflect that region's glacial history.
