I was hopeful on this one, but alas Whispering Winds has to no trails to explore. It is “accessible” in that you can walk into the woods at the end of the cul-de-sac, but there isn’t anything of note.
From the Colchester Land Trust site,
The Whispering Winds property is a 25 acre preserve that was deeded to the Colchester Land Trust by the developer of the Whispering Winds subdivision on Usher Swamp Road as a town-mandated subdivision set-aside. This lovely wooded property lies in the headwaters of the federally designated, “Wild and Scenic” Eightmile River and abuts land owned and managed for open space by the East Haddam Fish and Game Club.
