Montshire building, grounds & trails closed Read More
In the interest of public health, the Montshire’s building, grounds, and trails are temporarily closed until further notice.
This short walk close to David Goudy Science Park offers variety as you pass through a sunny field, among a cool grove of hemlock trees, and along the edge of a cove on the Connecticut River. Linger at an exhibit on the history of stonewalls, or stop on the deck overlooking Blood Brook’s turbulent entrance into the lagoon to discover more about the natural history of salmon.
The Animal Signs Kiosk is located along the Blood Brook Trail. See and touch the tracks of many local animal species and view other animal signs, including an owl pellet, a woodpecker nest, examples of unusual beaver “forestry,” and the leftovers from a squirrel’s dinner in this trailside exhibit.
