This is a partial/incomplete listing as I have not yet explored this property.
There is a single loop trail at the Lyon Preserve that runs about 0.5 miles. From the site,
“The upland is underlain by Hinckley soils and is characterized by early succession vegetation, such as Little Bluestem grass, Red Cedar, and Sweet Fern. There are also some large clumps of Bib Bluestem grass. An old gravel pit exposes the Hinkley soil and numerous blocks of grayish bedrock. A small White Pine woodland and portion of exposed ledge lie at the preserve’s northern extremity.
The lowland portion consists of floodplain underlain by a variety of wetland and alluvial soils. Lowland vegetation includes Red Osier, Willow, Alder, Pin Oak, and a variety of sedges. The southern property line runs along the middle of Mashamoquet Brook from the bridge at Pomfret landing to the Quinebaug River, a distance of 3150 feet. The banks of Mashamoquet Brook are steep and access is difficult.”
Protected since 1994.
