Please join the Middlesex Land Trust on April 29th at 1:00pm (after our Annual Meeting) for an afternoon of guided hiking at the Land Trusts Palmer Taylor Preserve in Portland, or at the Mica Ledges Preserve in Durham. These are two of our largest and loveliest preserves and represent the Land Trust’s Primary Preserves on both east and west sides of the Connecticut River.
On the east side of the Connecticut River, please join the Land Trust on an afternoon guided hike at a family-friendly pace at the beautiful wooded Palmer Taylor Preserve in Portland. This 90-acre preserve features the historic Erinmore Barn, wooded uplands, large hay fields, two ponds and Taylor Brook on the property. On the trails there are large rocks to climb and scenic spots overlooking the Connecticut River. Meet at the Barn at 258 Middle Haddam Road in Portland. You can find directions to the Preserve here: Directions to Erinmore Barn and print a map of the Palmer Taylor Preserve here: Palmer Taylor Map
For the west side of the Connecticut River there will be an afternoon guided hike at the beautiful Mica Ledges Preserve in Durham. The Mica Ledges Preserve has marvelous views from the mica-studded ledges, great jumbles of large boulders (e.g. Pyramid Rock) and the lovely Whitney Pond. Meet at the Cream Pot Road parking lot, located at the end of Cream Pot Road in Durham.
