Enjoy a three-state view from Laura’s Tower. Use the locator wheel atop the tower to orient yourself with area mountain ranges. Climb through stands of old hemlock and white pine that the Laurel Hill Association has been protecting since 1853, making it the oldest conservation group still active today. Head southeast from the parking area, crossing the Housatonic River on the Goodrich Memorial Suspension Footbridge, keep straight across the railroad tracks. The Mary Flynn Trail leaves to the left. Continue on the Laura's Tower Trail. The trail starts to climb through a mixed forest just after the tracks. White pine and hemlock trees make up the larger trees in the area.
