CT: Fairfield County- Redding: Redding Land Trust (Brinkhoffer Preserve) & Milestone (Food)

This afternoon “rocks” with stone paths over the river at this Redding preserve to Apres hike at Milestones in Georgetown. Achieve two milestones in one day!

The Beeholm Road entrance at Brinkhoffer preserve starts with a short boardwalk. The trail then leads to a meadow beyond which are the woods.

The white trail is the one I used which criss crosses the Brook at several points leading you over rocks in the water to get to the other side. These opportunities I found unique and fun about this trail.

The trail is varied with rock cliffs and high ledges as well as small water cascades and a swamp.

There were many opportunities to climb rock ledges overlooking the brooks and swamp as well as natural artwork on the trees offering your imagination to soar.

I saw this saber toothed tiger leaping at a gorilla who was majestically blocking the path protecting his young.

As an added bonus, the White Trail links into Devil’s Den, eventually joining the Den’s Donohue Trail. Please know that Devils Den is closed as of this writing. The trail map is below with the trail itself being very well marked.

Total of all trails is 3 miles and can be done as a loop. Off road parking at the end of beeholm road. Watch for the sign as pictured above as otherwise easily passed.

Fortunately there was a great restaurant nearby with outdoor fire pits to tell the tale.

“Apres-hike” a lovely atmosphere and food was found at Milestone. Only open for two years all the food is made fresh on premises and I found the chicken wings and Autumn Farro salad delicious. They also have a lovely heated outdoor deck as well as a patio with fire pits. They are located at 2 Main Street in Redding.
