Suffield Land Conservancy Trails
Suffering Suffieldatash. The town is large and rural. The Metacomet Ridge slices through the northern border town. Farms abound. Woods are a’plenty. And yet… and yet this organization had to fight to exist in the early 1980’s when developers were trying to do what they do in Suffield. Fortunately they gained a foothold and some no interest loans and have been able to preserve a solid chunk of property along the ridge and throughout town.
Some of their parcels are trailed and some are not. The only true way to sort that out is by visiting each, so let’s get going.
