Comments: After seeing the occasional comment on this Nature Conservancy property, I had the opporturnity to visit. It's a steep climb at the beginning to a great view. After gaining the ridge it's pretty mellow unless you are going in or out of this narrow, (by CT Standards), ravine in which is was short but steep. Some Mountain Laurel but less than other places. View ledge may have had a couple of blueberry bushes and it did have a couple of Junipers which were aromatic. After a heavy rain, the brook through the ravine and the cascades would be really good.
