Our Lands: An Overview

Weantinoge protects more than 10,000 acres of land including 28 working farms, over 160 wildlife sanctuaries, and 12 nature preserves open to the public with hiking trails.

About Our Trails

Our trails traverse fields, forests, and wetlands. They provide places for exploration, adventure, and solace. In order to preserve the backcountry experience, trail use is limited to hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing. The Trust welcomes volunteer assistance to help us maintain and protect our network.

Our trails are blazed with the Appalachian Trail and Connecticut Blue Blaze conventions using rectangles 2-inches wide by 6-inches high. Please hike only on established trails as off-trail hiking can cause erosion and disturb rare plants, birds, and sensitive habitats, while placing you at greater risk of encountering deer ticks and yellow jackets.

We hope you enjoy hiking our trails!
