A sweet stroll loop through woodlands to the beaver pond.

Description

This second loop passes through forestland, with views of a boulder-strewn hillside. A small stub trail goes to the northeast. A few hundred feet of Centennial Watershed State Forest separates the end of this stub from the Lotte Fields Bequest property.

The bulk of this preserve was donated by Saul and Janice Poliak. Longtime residents of Redding, they were active members of the community and generous philanthropists. Saul was a pioneer in the industrial convention business. Jan and Saul traveled the world and Jan often told of her experiences at the Mark Twain Library.

Their home was further North on Simpaug Turnpike, and their property included a beautiful pond, know to longtime residents as "Catfish Pond." Each summer, the Poliaks would host a summer party at their house on the Saugatuck. Families brought picnics and there were games for the kids.
