The land is flat, providing for easy walking through lovely woods of tulip poplar, oak, beech, maple and native understory. The blue trail crosses the wetlands of Armstrong Brook where peepers and other amphibians can be heard and seen in spring. The brook flows south from Hatchetts Hill to enter Long Island Sound just west of Hatchetts Point.
These 44 acres were purchased in 2013 with funds from a DEEP Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition (OSWA) grant. It is part of a 200 acre conglomeration of open space which is mostly privately held.
