Trails have been in existence upon acquisition by The Nature Conservancy of the first tracts in 1969 and accommodate walkers, bikers, runners and horseback riding. The main south to north trail is about 2 miles long and runs from the Lambtown Road pull-off parking area to the tennis courts on the Burton Tract. The trailhead is located on the north side of Lambtown Road (199) on the west tract of the Pike Preserve about .6 miles east of the Lambtown Road/Colonel Ledyard Highway intersection. The trail runs north through the Pike Preserve, the Hugh A. Marshall Preserve and the Burton Tract to a path behind the Ledyard High School tennis courts. The connector legs from Pike Marshall Preserve to the Burton Tract trails are not complete yet. The trail is blazed with (blue) markers. There are also overgrown unmarked trails on the east and west Pike Preserve tracts. Pets are permitted (dogs on leash).
