The Dan Glazier Forest covers much of the southern edge of Diamond Match Ridge. From the hillside it is possible to see Brushy Mountain and the upper cliffs of Rattlesnake Gutter to the south and part of the Mount Toby complex to the west. The forest, which was leveled by the 1938 hurricane, is mixed hardwood, pine and hemlock. There is a series of rock outcroppings on the western side.

Because the property borders recently cut land to the south and a power line to the west, there is a variety of forest and forest-edge habitats. Breeding birds include a Black-billed Cuckoo and Eastern Towhee (both near the power line edge), and Barred Owl, Hermit Thrush, Black-throated Green and Black-and-white Warblers, and Scarlet Tanager in the forest itself.

The Leverett Trails Committee (co-sponsored by the Rattlesnake Gutter Trust and the Leverett Conservation Commission) completed a loop trail through this 57-acre property in 2015.
