Trail Descriptions

Lime Kiln Loop

Length: 0.75 miles
Details: This 30-minute loop trail leads to a farm pond–often dry in late summer–up through a hayfield where bluebirds nest, past a quarry site to a bench along the edge of another bucolic hayfield offering excellent views of Mount Everett, then down along the field edge to the relict Lime Kiln, and past a shrub swamp teeming with birds back to the parking area.

Lime Kiln/Quarry/Ovenbird/Taconic Vista Loop 

Length: 1.8 miles
Details: Begin this 1.25-hour walk on Lime Kiln Loop. The trail soon enters woodland. This route passes former limestone quarry pits on both sides of the Quarry Trail. Boulder Spur leads to a glacial relict perched near the edge of a field. Taconic Vista Trail offers a spectacular view of the Taconic Mountains and Berkshire Hills to the west and north before it connects with Ovenbird Trail where songbirds enliven the mixed woodland in spring and early summer.
