Litchfield County: Happening in the Hills

Macricostas Preserve

Hiking trails in the northern section of Macricostas Preserve go up the slope of Waramaug’s Rock, a forested ridge that rises to an elevation of 1250 feet. At the summit is an incredible vista of Lake Waramaug in the distance. In stark contrast, the southern part of the Preserve treats hikers to idyllic views of an expansive, gently-rolling meadowland. Totaling about 50 acres, this sprawling field of grasses and wildflowers is a charming throwback to the pastures of 19th-century Connecticut. Meeker Swamp sits in the middle of the Preserve.
