Property Map: 

“A visit to the Haddam Land Trust’s Bamforth property is always a joy. The property, a large hay field surrounded by tree lines provides wonderful views to the south along the Turkey Hill Brook valley. Wander the property’s trail as it snakes in and out of the trees and along a brook. Bring your cross country skis in the winter and enjoy nicely rolling trails. The scenes are always amazing with fiery colors in the fall, snow blanketed fields in winter, young green shoots in spring and hay past your waist in the summer. The Bamforth Property, definitely worth a visit.” - Rob Butterworth, CFPA Forest & Trails Conservation Committee Member
