Hike the Sprague Land Preserve Loop

Sprague Land Preserve - Search Nearby - Added by Tiffany Young

One of the largest land preserves in SE, Connecticut with many surprises.

The Sprague Land Preserve (also known as the Mukluk Preserve) was an incredible surprise. Whether it's hiking, fishing, or horseback riding it's a beautiful spot for anyone that can get there at sunrise and out before sunset when the gates close.

You can easily get there by Google Mapping the name, but when "you reach your destination", just continue to drive on Holton Rd and you'll reach an entrance before a dead end. The drive to the parking lot is narrow and slow driving is recommended, especially on wet days!

Funny thing is, this preserve was once a rifle range and sports club in the 60s, now being cleaned for a natural preserve for all! (With some restricted spots during this cleaning process.)

The preserve rests on the Shetucket River with multiple trails that connects into a loop. Here's a link to a trail map: http://www.ctsprague.org/resou...

When I do the hiking, I continue on the road and pass the Fairy Trail where I'll find the River Ridge Trail that takes you alone the river edge.

Enjoy the adventure!
