See gorges, reservoir vistas, and historic artifacts in this grand loop through one of Connecticut’s most popular nature preserves. Like most other protected woodlands of western Connecticut, the land now known as the Devil’s Den was once used for the manufacture of charcoal. On their excursions through the woods, some of the nineteenth-century charcoal makers, climbing over the rocky ledges and outcrops, found a depression in one resembling a hoof print. They thought the print had been left by the Devil, and thus this patch of woods got its name. In the mid-1960s, a woman named Katharine Ordway began buying up the land. She eventually donated it to the state chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and today the 1,756-acre Devil’s Den Preserve is the largest privately protected area in Fairfield County and the largest TNC property in Connecticut.
