HIKE DIFFICULTY

Easy to Moderate

50 acres

 

This preserve has beautiful ridges, ledge outcroppings and woodlands as well as vernal pools and a segment of Bucky Brook (Blackhall River). Hiking is easy to moderate, considering some elevation changes, with a total trail distance of about one mile which takes an average of an hour to walk.

 

Note: The beautiful field-stone house is owned by the OLLT but is leased to tenants. Please respect their privacy and also only park in the designated spots. Please do not venture off the trails into areas marked “Private Property".

 

History:

Mary Steube bequeathed the

entire 50 acre property and

house to the Trust “to be

preserved in its natural state

for study, education and

conservation purposes.”

An extremely generous friend

of the Trust, Mary Steube also

donated the George and

Woodward H. Griswold

Preserve and a significant sum

of money that the Trust has

used to acquire other properties.
