The Brainerd Quarry Preserve is a 50-acre preserve that was acquired by the Middlesex Land Trust in 2015 in partnership with the Connecticut River Gateway Commission. This preserve features a beautiful view of the Connecticut River and Haddam Meadows State Park. A trail system that runs along both the ridge and the base of dramatic cliffs, created from the property’s historic use as a quarry, has been created for use by the public.
Please wear sturdy boots or sneakers, and bring snacks and water as desired. Kids are welcome, as are dogs on leash. Downpours, storms, or heavy snow will cancel the hike – check our Facebook page or website for updates. Please call the Middlesex Land Trust at (860) 343-7537 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to let us know that you plan on attending – although you are welcome to attend without advance notice
