Our Lands: An Overview

Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy protects more than 12,000 acres of land including 35 working farms, over 160 wildlife sanctuaries, and 21 nature preserves open to the public with hiking trails.

About Our Trails

Our trails traverse fields, forests, and wetlands. They provide places for exploration, adventure, and solace. In order to preserve the backcountry experience, trail use is limited to hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing. NCLC welcomes volunteer assistance to help us maintain and protect our network. If you’re interested in volunteering, please email info@ctland.org.

Please hike only on established trails as off-trail hiking can cause erosion and disturb rare plants, birds, and sensitive habitats while placing you at greater risk of encountering deer ticks and yellow jackets. Please keep dogs leashed.

We hope you enjoy hiking our trails!
