Linkage trail over to Limekiln Area

Description

In the northwest corner of the Limekiln Tract, the Todd’s Wood Trail strikes out a quarter mile to Bald Rock, just over the Bethel town line. This high lookout point commands a sweeping view of Bogus Mountain nearby and—on the sort of clear day when one is supposed to see “forever”-the faraway foothills of the Taconic and Berkshire uplands. A southward spur of this trail is planned to the subdivision road called John Todd’s Way.

Much of the Limekiln Road area, including these tracts, was owned in the last century by various members of the Todd family, of whom Charles Burr Todd is best remembered for having written a history of Redding.
