Perry Natural Area – Stonington / property details / get directions / trail map

There is a lot to discover along the trails here. Beautiful nature, very old trees, but also a lot of human history to think about: walls, old foundations, wells, a cemetery and mysterious stone piles. As you walk the trails, keep your eyes open!

Don’t forget to take photos of your finds and share on Instagram with #myavalonia or email to!



Find the big standing stone that is like a gate post at the opening in the wall


This area has weathered many big storms over the years.  A number of trees have broken or fallen over.  When they uproot, the roots pull right out of the ground so the tree falls over. You can examine the roots and the hole it came out of.


One of the founding families in the area lived on this land and there are many signs of their presence: the old foundation and wells and many stone walls, which represents tons of labor over decades, in configurations that hint they may have held in animals. The foundation was recently cleared and is easy to view.


The Brown Family lived on this land and were buried here as well. See if you can read the stories the headstones tell.
