Wolfpit Preserve

Project Info

Project Description

Three joined properties from the Nature Conservancy, Norwalk Savings, and Wormser family totally 82 acres.

Marked trail system (part of Enchanted trail), two portions with steep climb to overlooks. Overgrown wet meadow. Wetland area with spring peepers. Beaver swamp visible from trail. Old stone walls and granite quarry (the wolfpit)

Graveled parking for 4-5 cars area off Hearthstone Lane. Hearthstone Lane is an unmarked DIRT road between 37 and 39 Wolfpits Road. Heathstone Lane itself will not appear on most GPS devices, use 37 or 39 Wolfpits Road to get to the parking lot. The parking lot has a kiosk with future information about the property.


The Enchanted Trail stretches across Wolfpit Preserve, the Bethel Educational park, Boardwalk, and into East Swamp. It passes through a mix of Bethel Land Trust properties and public land.  Nature interpretative signs are available at different points of the trail to learn about the wildlife and environment.  There is a boardwalk added in 2020 on the Orange Trail that cuts through a bog with excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife.
