Bull Hill Project

Wyndham Land Trust Property

994 acres in Woodstock and Thompson, CT

Parking: Small lot uphill from 174 Bull Hill Rd Woodstock, CT

Trail Map          Trails: 2 miles        Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The drive up to Bull Hill’s parking lot is a bit rough on a rutted dirt road, but there is an spacious parking lot just inside an old rusted gate.  From here the trail starts on an undeveloped stretch of Bull Hill Rd.  If you follow it you will eventually reach the other side in Grosvenordale.

Signs carved by Ellis Tech Manufactoring guide the way to the Bull Hill overlook.  From the parking lot it’s about .85 miles of wide rolling path that gradually climbs to the overlook.  The viewpoint is known as “Three Trees” because the hilltop has been cleared except for a large maple right next to the summit and… two others to the left.  A long bench is set on the summit with a half ring of rocks.  The view is nearly 360 degrees with the main view of South Woodstock and Roseland Lake.

The Wyndham Land Trust cautions:

Currently, the Bull Hill Preserve is a work in progress. Although WLT owns approximately 975 acres on Bull Hill, all the properties are not contiguous, but are interspersed with property owned by others. Please respect our neighbors by parking in the designated area and staying on the marked hiking trail.


The initial 254 acres was purchased in February 2017.  The additional 740 acres have since been added in non-contiguous parcels.
