Kahlo Preserve is a small forested property nestled along Hop Brook with a short out-and-back trail. The trail begins along a downhill path, crosses a foot bridge, and then follows Hop Brook along its southern bank past small waterfalls and natural pools. From the preserve, Hop Brook flows a half mile to the Housatonic River.

The preserve was generously donated by G.D. Kahlo, III to Brookfield Open Space Legacy, Inc. (BOSLI) in 1986.  In 2019, BOSLI merged with Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy (NCLC) after many years of partnership. NCLC now stewards Kahlo Preserve and maintains the trail, often with the help of volunteers. If you are looking for a quick escape, and a shady, streamside walk, please visit this lovely property. We kindly ask that you stay on the red-blazed trail to respect the flora, fauna, and neighboring private properties.
