Goodnow Preserve on the Konkapot
Some 300 acres of open fields, dense forest and woodland roads comprise the Goodnow Preserve. From the parking area, walk diagonally across the field, across the culvert and up along the edge of the field until you come to the second pasture. At the middle of the pasture, a trail to the right goes into the woods and leads to a hidden lower pasture; a trail to the left follows a stone wall to a pasture on Hadsell Street. The land slopes down – sometimes gently, sometimes steeply – to the Konkapot River. The adventurous will follow an old woods road downhill about one-half mile to the remnants of the Lower Carroll Mill.
