There are three trails totaling 1.15 miles at the Crystal Peat Conservation Area. From the Tolland town website,
“The terrain of the land is very flat. Most of the north and east sides of the area are wetlands, especially in the peat bog area and near the brook. In the middle of the property, there is a 0.3 acre pond surrounded by heavy undergrowth. Brooks Brook starts on this property and flows south, joining the Skungamaug River just before entering the Charter Marsh.”
Established as a conservation area in 2013 when the land was purchased from Crystal Peat Humus Company, Inc. (the Roncari family). The land was used to farm peat.
