Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust board member Sharon Danosky and Deer Pond Farm director Cathy Hagadorn, took Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust hikers on a two-mile guided tour of pristine hardwood forest, meadows, and wetlands.

Wriston, of 835 acres of rugged hardwood forest, meadows, and wetlands straddling the state border of Connecticut and New York.
