Event Details

Discover two of western Connecticut’s most pristine nature preserves, learning of their natural communities, history, and unique attributes from guides who intimately know and steward the land. Join Steep Rock Association (SRA) and Roxbury Land Trust (RLT) on a 4-mile inter-town hike along Tunnel Road on Saturday, October 1st, 2022 from 11:00am – 1:30pm.

Rory Larson (SRA’s Conservation Science Manager) and Jamie Curren (RLT’s Land and Property Manager), both Roxbury natives, will lead the walk. This partially closed town road connecting protected lands owned by the two organizations offers unparalleled views of the Shepaug River as it follows the waterway’s course into expansive core forests. It also lies adjacent to the old Shepaug Valley Railroad bed, rich in history for discussion along the way. All ages are welcome, but please take note of the hike’s length.
