“Dog-friendly hiking trails right out your front door … While others have to pack their children and dogs in the car to enjoy a family hike all we have to do is go right out our back door. We wake up to a symphony of birds in the spring, we go berry picking, leaf peeping, and sledding. Never a dull moment … We started to think of Trout Brook as our second backyard,” the owners said.
Some backyard. The preserves, managed by the Aspetuck Land Trust, combine to provide more than 1,000 acres and about 20 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and bridle trails. People often snowshoe, cross-country ski and sled there this time of year and come summer months they stroll through the blueberry patches and apple orchard. The acreage straddles the towns of Easton and Weston. less
