Landlocked island

Some dilapidated structures not far off the trail recalls the area's days as a dairy farm.

Location: Deer Island Preserve

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 2.34 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 18 minutes


Coppertone and I stopped by hike the trails here since we were looking at houses in the area.  Because of the timing constraints we were not able to walk all of the trails here, just the loop that encircles the preserve.

The trail is a bit overgrown in places, though there was never a question of where it was or the direction it was going.  Though we did not get to the higher elevations of the preserve, we still got a few nice views during our walk owing to the low, flat marshes and land that surround Deer Island.
