After parking at Ansonia Nature Center head down through the ball fields to Raptor Woods. Enter the White Trail via Raptor Woods Green Trail. Hike clockwise on the White Trail past, a large glacial erratic which has been reported to look like Mr. Spock from Star Trek. Continue from the White Trail onto the Purple Trail and again on the White Trail. Please stay on CT State Land and do not trespass on the Water Supply Land. This takes you past two concrete tablets (photo location) located on a stone wall entrance way. One says "Last Settlement 1833” and the other “Paugassett Indians" marking the last Native American village in the area. Keep following white back to Raptor Woods Trail where you entered.Show more
