Looking across the Shepaug from our River Road Preserve


In order to keep our preserves open, we need your cooperation.

Please remember to:
1) Park only in approved spaces. Lot full? Try another preserve. They’re all lovely, we promise.

2) Practice social distancing. This means at least 6 feet apart. If the trails are crowded, please see #1, sentences 3 and 4.

3) Keep dogs on leash. Pick up after Fido and carry deposits out for proper disposal. This keeps the preserves clean and healthy for all, including our water supplies.

4) Practice "Leave No Trace". The preserves are for all to enjoy. This includes the wildlife that make it their home. Please don’t leave anything behind.

5) Consider a donation to help keep our preserves open and well-maintained for everyone.

6) Remember, we’re #inittogether!

Enjoy our trails with care, and report areas in need of attention to the RLT office, 860-350-4148 or by e-mail to Jamie Curren. Be weather smart. Please use good judgment with weather conditions. As always, motorized vehicles are prohibited, and preserves close at dusk. Dog Walkers: Please, keep your dog leashed and clean up after him/her. Please practice "Leave No Trace" — Leave only footsteps, take only photos. Carry out and properly dispose of whatever you bring in. Your cooperation allows everyone to safely enjoy the preserves.

Preserves Map: 30 miles of trails available as a single PDF download or as a web page. From this page you can also download several individual preserves maps.

Please help: Some of our historic structures, farmland and preserves have been vandalized. If you see something, please say something. Report acts of vandalism to our resident state trooper at 860-354-0089 and/or our RLT office 860-350-4148.

Thank you for keeping our preserves safe and accessible for everyone to enjoy!
