Devil's Den Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."
