Description

This particular trail system, combined with the Land Trust’s Yovan Tract next door, provides a splendid setting for a stroll through diverse forest types.

Flora & Fauna

Along the central stretch of the Fifth Connecticut and the eastern section of the Drummer, one passes through dense stands of mountain laurel. Oak is predominant in the north as the Noose and the Fifth Connecticut ascend steeply to a height of land (one of the Whortleberry Hills) at elevation 640 feet. And directly north of the Drummer’s junction with the Fifth Connecticut is a fine old stand of hemlock. At the second stream crossing (counting from the entrance) is a glade resplendent in season with ferns and marsh marigolds.
