A network of color-blazed trails (white, blue, red, and yellow) as well as a snowmobile trail across the property allow visitors to explore this recently conserved preserve. A few other short/spur trails provide trail connections or scenic views. Visit Knight's Pond, or follow trails into the woods through oak-hickory forests and alongside vernal pools. Trails crossing Blueberry and Bruce Hills provide for some nice elevation changes. Snowshoeing and skiing are permitted, though trails are not managed specifically for these uses.

This trail skirts the east side of the pond and continues to the power line with a great view. Although not well marked it is easy to follow. well worth the trip.

We have rerouted a number of trails and are acquiring more land for even more trails. Check out most-recent maps at RRCT.org

The pond was beautiful. Blueberry hill didn’t have much to see and was muddy in places but still a good workout

This new 300-acre preserve and the conserved landscape is popular for ice skating, fishing, dog walking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, hunting, and more. The trails are well marked and traveled so they are very easy to follow. The varied terrain makes the loop a nice trek through a dense forest. Perfect for mountain biking.
