This is a partial/incomplete listing as I have not yet explored Champlain South.

From the town website,

An extensive trail system includes ridges, streams, vernal pools and bogs, with routes ranging from less than a half mile to a two-mile property loop. Spectacular 100-foot granite cliffs can be seen along the “white trail” which starts at Library Lane.

Another Champlain Farm South point of interest is the old roadway traveling along the ridge from the end of Meeting House Hill north toward I-95. Look carefully at sections of the road where it crosses exposed bedrock and you may be able to discover the tracks of old iron-wheeled carts that traversed the farms of the 17th and 18th centuries. They may have been carrying farm families to the church on Meeting House Hill near where the Old Lyme Country Club stands today!
