Stonewalls and their History with Alan Goldbecker at Poindexter Preserve, Easton
Enjoy a hike with Aspetuck Land Trust Board Member, Alan Goldbecker. Alan will lead a walk through our 40-acre Poindexter Preserve, a good example of old CT farm land returning to forest with lots of beautiful stone walls.
One of our nicest and most interesting preserves, the entrance from Judd Road opens to an old field which is adorned with beautiful dogwood trees. The trail leads from this field through a mature white pine forest and across a stream to an old fieldstone dam. Easton Scout, Will Hermann, built a bridge over wetlands in 2006 which allows visitors to keep their socks dry! While you enjoy a wonderful 45 minute to one hour hike through a meadow and pine and hardwood forest, look for a wide range of stonewalls from single to double width and then explore a pond created by the hand-laid stone dam.
Length: 1 1/2 to 2 hour walk
Dress: Sturdy shoes and protection from deer ticks which are present this time of year.
