Lots of history can be seen at sites along this trail if you pay attention. The mill pond and portable sawmill can’t be missed with well-marked, descriptive signage throughout this remote preserve, which is part of the largest contiguous parcel of open space in Fairfield County. This route begins with climbing a hill through dense laurel with a house directly to your left through the trees. As the laurel thins, you’ll see stone walls crisscrossing amidst mid- growth beech, oak, and black birch. Cross over a swift-moving brook on a wooden bridge wide enough for a small vehicle to pass over at 0.39 mile. As soon as the trail makes an abrupt left shortly after this bridge, its name changes to the Godfrey Trail.
