This 328-acre preserve, located west of the Borough of Litchfield, includes most of a locally prominent hill featuring a spectacular viewpoint near its 1350-foot summit, as well as a large pond to the west. It is mostly forested, with several meadows indicating past agricultural uses. The area was subject to significant nickel mining explorations in the 19th century.
