Hike through fields and forests on this nice route. Pass through beautiful fields of wildflowers on your way to Hurlburt’s Hill, a pristine scenic overlook. Stroll along the banks of the Housatonic River, passing the second largest cottonwood tree in the state. Return on the Ledges Trail, which makes its way around the cobble that gives this property its name. From the visitor center parking area, cross Weatogue Road and enter the field. The Hal Borland Trail follows the northern edge of the field. Many different wildflowers grow in the fields and open spaces throughout the year. A sign-board on the outside of the visitor center shows photos of what is in bloom at any given time. The trail bends to the left, following a cow pasture filled with friendly cows that love to come up to the fence to say hi.
