The Sleeping Astronomer

Home to a scenic rock formation long known in local lore, the Sleeping Astronomer Forest was donated to the Forest Society in 2005. The rock formation resembles the famed Old Man of the Mountain lying on his back. The property includes the moderate Loop Trail (.83 miles), which provides scenic views of historic downtown Littleton.
