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.

Gunshots your thing? Was just here with my pregnant wife and entered at Ansonia Nature Center. Aftera few minutes an a extremely loud BANG went off as we walked along the trail. We were extremely caught off guard and were extremely scared. I like to be informed if there is going to be hunting rifles shooting and there was no signage regarding any hunting at that entrance. Be very careful and safe - I would not recommend bringing kids or pets here until proper signage has been placed with a warning.

Nicely maintained and well blazed loop. The elevation gain is minimal so this hike is great for kids wanting something a little longer. Old settlement ruins are cool along with lean to's I'm guessing made by nature center trips.
