SLT Rosedale Farms Trail

What's new:

Corn maze removed.

Description:

* Please note this trail is subject to closure at times to accommodate farm operations. Rosedale Farms is a historic working farm whose agricultural character is permanently protected by a Simsbury Land Trust conservation easement. Rosedale Farms consists of 109 acres of fine agricultural soils. The farm abuts and protects 1,400 feet of Farmington River frontage and associated wetlands. The mix of fields, woods and waterways provide rich wildlife habitat and is part of the Farmington River wildlife corridor. Educational signage is present at the edge of the trail describing the farmland soils, local geology and the history of Rosedale Farms. The trail follows the existing farm road past fruit trees and the entrance to the seasonal corn maze. Take a moment to explore the native plant garden that has been planted near the bend of the ravine, towards the Farmington River. The end of the trail offers an opportunity to enjoy glimpses of various birds and other wildlife to be found near the river and surrounding habitats. The trail is level and approximately 1 mile long and is not a loop trail. Use the Rosedale Farms entrance off East Weatogue Street. Park in the parking lot at the rear of the store. The trail begins at the SLT kiosk and follows the existing farm road. Please stay on the path and follow the signs on your right. The area closes at sunset and dogs are not allowed.
