Woodbridge Land Trust & Town Trails
Woodbridge makes it impossible to separate the land trust from the town trails.
I bet you didn’t know that the Woodbridge Land Trust is one of the oldest land trusts in Connecticut. Of course, I’ve read that on dozens of land trust websites. It’s as if there’s not cut-off or what “one of” means. I’ll say this for them though – they have a good website with good maps. Maps which show most of the land is actually town of Woodbridge land.
An interesting sidenote to hiking Woodbridge is that, according to the WLT, many of the trail miles in town follow the “historic” Naugatuck Trail. Today, the CFPA’s Naugatuck Trail only extends south to southern Bethany, just north of Woodbridge. But it used to continue south to New Haven, and the WLT has kept those trails cleared, blazed CFPA blue, and named “Naugatuck.” So that’s pretty cool.
If linked, I’ve hiked it.
