This conviently located 654 acre land preserve is owned and managed by the Somer's Land Trust. It is the home to one of the few local places where native trout still rule the streams. The terrain is rolling and varied with some nice streams. We will do a 5 mile hike along most of the border of the southern section (south of route 139). This park is brand new and trails are still in the process of being completed. I believe this is the first time a meetup group will utilize this preserve.
