Campbell Peaceful Valley has 1.5 miles of trails.  The overlook is the main feature and requires a short climb and all the hiking trails here are excellent.  Be sure to take the winding blue ridge trail and tack on the adjacent Stoppleworth Conservation Area an additional .8 miles of trail with interesting water features and birch grove.

From the Tolland town site it,

“…has a pastoral setting with over 3,000 feet of frontage on Hunter Road offering a valley vista to the south. The open pasture, brook, and wet aldershrub lowlands rise steeply about 150 feet to a ridgeline of exposed ledge at an elevation of 850 feet above sea level.  From knobs on the ridgeline, one can view the Connecticut Valley to the southwest and Mt. Tom to the north. The exposed ridgeline on the property is a remnant of a historic fault line. The property is a diverse wildlife habitat and wetland, uplands and an exposed ledge.”

History:

Established as a conservation area in 2003 when it was purchased from Beatrice and Clarence Campbell.
