Trail Description

Perkins Wildlife Corridor – Pequotsepos Preserves (3 combined Avalonia Parcels that adjoin Denison land and connect to DPNC)

Although street side parking is not the best, this burnt orange trail marked hike is sure to please.  Located across Jerry Brown Road and to the southwest of White Cedar Swamp & Deans Mill Preserve, it is somewhat difficult to find: use the Explorer App. It is composed of two intersecting loops, approximately 1.5 miles total, with a combined 108ft of elevation gain.  The trail is packed earth, easy to hike, with a trail width ranging of about two to three feet to broad open.  It is pet friendly for dogs on a leash, and located in Stonington, it provides great opportunity for bird watching, with occasional small wildlife. It boasts a stream and wetlands with lovely spring wildflowers, several large rocks, a ledge overlook and stone walls. Avalonia trail connects to Denison land trails leading to DPNC; portraying the great partnerships that exists among land preservation and conservation organizations.
