The Kent Land Trust (KLT), the Warren Land Trust (WLT) and the Lake Waramaug Association (LWA) invite you to join us on Sat. June 1st at 10:00am for Trails Day 2024! This year we are showcasing new trails on adjoining KLT and WLT preserves located in the Lake Waramaug watershed. These trails feature scenic old walls, rock outcroppings of every size and shape, lovely streams, meadows and marshy areas, a walk alongside Beaman Pond and a glimpse of Lake Waramaug along with the chimney and foundation walls of an historic farm building.

The hike which we estimate will take approximately 2 hours starts at WLT’s Cunningham Nature Preserve and winds through both that preserve and KLT’s East Kent Hamlet Nature Preserve before looping back through Cunningham once more. The trail is approximately 3.5 miles long, has an elevational change of about 580 feet and should be considered MODERATELY DIFFICULT. As always, STURDY HIKING SHOES are the best footwear; mud, though not widespread, should always be considered a possibility in our New England climate, and bringing BUG SPRAY & WATER is never a bad decision. We will have board members and staff from our respective organizations to guide you, and snacks for that appetite you’re sure to work up!

We look forward to welcoming you to Kent Land Trust, Warren Land Trust and the Lake Waramaug Association’s 2024 Trails Day hike! It’s going to be a great one.
