Join the Young Professionals for our last hike of the season at Lucius Pond Ordway/Devil’s Den Preserve, led by The Nature Conservancy’s Connecticut staff. The preserve's 20-mile trail system winds past dramatic rocky crests, outcroppings, and cliffs forming high ledges partly covered with grasses, mosses, and lichens. More than 500 types of trees and wildflowers are featured at the preserve, including the beautiful pink lady's slipper, cardinal flower, and Indian pipe. Devil's Den is home to red fox, bobcat, coyote, Eastern copperhead, wood duck, ruffed grouse, pileated woodpecker and more than 140 other bird species.
After several hours spent hiking and exploring Devil’s Den, we will make the short drive to Silverman’s Farm for fresh apples, cider, donuts and gifts. Apple picking is also available if the season allows. When we’ve had our fill of Fall festivities, we will return to NYC in the early evening.
