The Herrick Preserve’s mixed hardwood forest offers easy hiking and gentle slopes.  It is a 1.25 mile hike to the Housatonic Overlook that gives hikers a beautiful view to the northeast and up the river valley. Along the way, you may notice old stonewalls and vernal pools. This preserve also connects with the Appalachian Trail, giving hikers the option for a longer hike.

Park on the west side of Evans Hill Road, near the intersection with Route 55.
