Trail surfaces are forest floor and boardwalks. Primitive boardwalks cross several wetland areas. The terrain is flat. The Neilmann Parcel is open to the public from dawn to dusk. Unleashed dogs, dumping, unauthorized vehicles, fires, camping, hunting, fishing, and trapping are prohibited. The 145-acre parcel is primarily wooded with wetlands and vernal pools. The woods reveal old logging roads and stumps that are clues to the lands history. The western portion of this property encompasses part of Miller Swamp, the largest wetland in the Town of Wilton. An early springtime walk along the Neilmann Parcel trails will engulf the visitor with the sounds of frogs and toads. The less-than-fully prepared hiker will not stop for long, though; this parcel is known for its mosquitoes!

A little buggy so bring spray. But a great short woodland hike for the family. Or a great route for anyone looking for a trail run.

Easy trail with no elevation to speak of. Lots of bugs (gnats of some sort) when we went in early June.
