Hatchetts Hill Preserve

The preserve is 44 acres and was purchased in 2013 from Elyandco, Inc. with funds from a DEEP Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition (OSWA) grant. With a large wetlands in the northwestern corner, the land shelters much of the source of Armstrong Brook, which flows from Hatchetts Hill south to just west of Hatchetts Point, where it enters the Long Island Sound.

The preserve is part of a 200-acre conglomeration of open space (much of it held by private homeowners associations and closed to the public). Across the street is the 16-acre OLLT Founders Way Preserve.


Hatchetts Hill is a left turn off Four Mile River Road going north just before the entrance to  I-95 (south)(exit 71).

The land is flat, providing for easy walking through lovely woods of oak, beech, maple and native understory. The blue trail crosses the wetlands where, in season, spring peepers and other amphibians can be heard and seen.
