Hiking Trails

The New Canaan Nature Center is located on a 40-acre site which features unusual habitat diversity, including wet and dry meadows, two ponds, wet and dry woodlands, dense thickets, an old orchard, and a cattail marsh. Two miles of trails criss-cross the site (including a 350-foot marsh boardwalk), and two observation towers overlook the wetlands and cattail marsh. The property has both developed and undeveloped areas, offering a variety of horticultural experiences for visitors.
