Poquetanuck Cove: Spooky And Beautiful

Preserve Is 234 Acres On Banks Of Thames River In Ledyard

Nature's Path & Way To Go
At first, the description of The Nature Conservancy's Poquetanuck Cove Preserve in Ledyard seems to go a bit overboard. "Go back in time to when Native Americans camped along these shores to harvest oysters, and bald eagles soared overhead."
After a slight chuckle and roll of my eyes, I got out of the car and started my journey along the 1.5-mile trail that travels through the 234-acre preserve on the banks of the Thames River. After passing through a second-growth forest crisscrossed by stone walls with a half-dozen wolf trees seemingly standing guard next to them, the path entered a ravine filled with huge hemlocks. The bright, sparkling day had suddenly been turned into a spooky twilight................
