The trails at the Leclair Preserve are just old logging roads and a formal trail has yet to be established. The distance of the logging road paths is unknown at this time.
From the Wyndham Land Trust site, “The majority of the property is oak and white pine, and it is part of a large forest track that extends well into Rhode Island. Barred owls, pine warblers, ovenbirds, and wood thrushes are some of the nesting bird species that have been reported here. Reports of whippoorwills have not been confirmed.”
Protected since 2011 when it was donated by Marie LeClair. From the Wyndham Land Trust site, “Marie’s husband, Roland, purchased the property in the mid-1950’s,” said Andy Rzeznikiewicz, a member of the Wyndham Land Trust Board of Directors. “Marie enjoyed countless hours hiking around the property with her three beloved dogs. She is happy that this forest will be protected forever.”
