THIS HIKE: Tri-Town Forest Preserve, North Stoningon, CT (91 Miller Rd)
Once again we will be hiking these trails with Carl who laid them out. The property straddles Griswold, North Stonington and Preston covering 527 acres. It is a well blazed trail system with diverse topography. We will head up the central Red Axis Road from the lot and head over to Lost Pond on the Yellow. Then through Oak Alley, continuing along the Yellow Trail south of the bog to the cut-off of the Blue Trail. Then proceed south to the foundation and west to the Axis Road and to the lot. Some splendid native stonework to be seen there. Directions from Westerly: Rte 2 West, to where Rte 201 cuts off to the right up the hill at traffic light (Cossaduck Hill Road). Follow Rte 201 towards Griswold and turn left onto Miller Road just past the turn off for Billings Lane. The parking lot is where Miller Road sharply bends (look for mailbox on right numbered 90). OR take Exit 92 north from I-95 and continue on Route 2 West then follow above directions. Alternate route: Follow above directions, once you are on Rte 201 North, turn left onto Northwest Corner Road, turn right onto Miller Road, at sharp corner you will see mailbox numbered 85 on left side, parking lot entrance right after that on same side.
