White Memorial - Little Pond Walk

  • No location was chosen

  • The White Memorial Foundation was a gift of over 4000 acres from Alain White and his sister May in 1913 to the public.  The sanctuary contains over 35 miles of hiking trails through varied terrains, a Bantam Lake, a research and education center, and a campground.  We will visit one of the most popular areas, the boardwalk around Little Pond.  Little Pond is a part of the Bantam River.  There is canoeing, kayaking, bird watching, and nature study to be enjoyed.

    The White Memorial also runs a Conservation Center with exhibits and programs for the public.  See their web site at http://www.whitememorialcc.org.  You may visit the museum after the walk if desired.

    Parking is along Whites Wood Road.  There is no parking lot.

    This will be an easy walk of about 1.8 miles with a level trail.  Social walking pace.  We will be out for 1.5 hours, or as fate may have it. 

    You may visit the center after our walk if you like.  Admission is charged.

    Dogs unfortunately are not allowed (local rules).  Children are welcome as long as they can go the distance.

    The walk will be rescheduled if there is a threat of rain.

    Location:  This is an approximate address. There is no mailbox there. A GPS is not guaranteed to lead you there.

    149 Whites Wood Rd, Litchfield, CT.

    Sorry for the last minute cancellation. The rain will make the boardwalk slippery. I will do this walk some time in the future.

    Mapped it and it's 48 miles one way. Think I'll have to pass on this one even though it sounds interesting. Thanks Larry.

    Hi Ronnie, if you put the address into your GPS it should get you close enough to see other cars parked along the road.. I have hiked with the group a couple of time and am thinking about going on this one too, and the address provided always got me close enough that I could see parked cars.. here is the address 149 Whites Wood Rd, Litchfield, CT.

    Whites Woods Rd intersects the Little Pond trail near Bissell Rd. Number 147 Whites Woods Rd will bring you close to the meeting point Enter this address into Mapquest to get directions. This is the main entrance to the trail. Other entrances are not usable due to issues with neighbors.

    I know this location well and there is no way to know where to meet-up by this description. As the description states, the land is over 35 miles of woods. The description says that there is no parking lot so the location is not at the main entrance where the museum is... so where are we meeting to go to little pond? I know the closest entrance to the boardwalk trail (around little pond) but the info here will not lead people there...so again, please be specific as to where we are meeting. ty
