Mostly open deciduous woods comprise the 74.5 acre preserve. However, two superior stands of planted evergreens along with two open fields give the Gregg Preserve a diversity of cover types, which make a visit most intriguing.

The network of trails occured mainly under private ownership. One section of the trail system follows and crosses Mayapple Brook with a series of wooden bridges. The brook meanders throughout the parcel flowing generally from east to west. The parcel's largest wooded swamp situated in the north drains to the south and makes up a part of the Mayapple Brook watershed.

The wide trails cover relatively gentle terrain, great for cross country skiing, walking, botanizing and birding as seasons permit. For a longer hike, one can access the trails of the adjoining Belknap Preserve via the eastern portion of the orange trail.
