In this video I am highlighting one of the many benefits of living in Easton Ct and what makes this town unique. Easton is known for its open space and hiking trails. This video highlights the Trout Brook Valley Preserve (TBV) which was saved from developers in 1999 by Aspetuck Land Trust and a coalition of concerned citizens including key support from actor and philanthropist and Westporter Paul Newman and his daughter Lissy Newman. The property was purchased for $11.3 million with support from the State of Connecticut and local contributors. In 1999, this land was owned by Bridgeport Hydraulic Co and they were going to sell it to a developer who was going to build 103 luxury homes and a golf course. It is now a combined with 2 other preserves and open space from Weston making it nearly 20 miles of trails, ranging from easy to difficult.
Go to aspetucklandtrust.org for more information on this open space. You can download a GIS map on Avenza Maps app before you go on the hike.
