This is a partial/incomplete listing as I have not yet explored this property.

The Tamler Preserve has a short old forest road that leads to a loop trail added by Eagle Scouts in 2002.  The distance is estimated at around a mile, but unknown at this time.

From the Wyndham Land Trust site, “It’s wild, remote, untouched, hilly, wooded, and rocky,” said Jeff Stefanik, who surveyed the property and is a board member of the land trust.  The most striking thing to me is how this property is contiguous to or near three different state forests–the Quaddick State Forest in Connecticut, the George Washington Management Area and Buck Hill Wildlife Management Area in Rhode Island, and the Douglas State Forest in Massachusetts. The end result is a massive forest block. I don’t think folks are aware of the significance of this block is because it is divided between the three different states. The Tamler Preserve fits right into that.”

History:

Protected since 1990 with acreage added in 1993 and 2015.
