Heller is a small land preserve and the parking lot can hold 6 or 7 vehicles. There are three trails and some steep areas but we will be going slowly. There are some interesting indigenous stone constructions. The land was farmed but is generally too rocky for successful agriculture. There is a nice brook and winter views of Long Island Sound. The border of the towns of Lyme and Old Lyme runs thru the property and the US Geological Survey placed a marker there to show a change of direction in the property demarcation.
Natural water drainage from Heller lands are the very beginning of the Lieutenant River that flows into the Connecticut. One area of Heller has been known as a place that indigenous people would gather at various times.
