Kuiaski Preserve Trail


This 1.8 mile trail is located in a 43 acre- forest owned by DEEP with a large pond in the Menunketeseck-Cockaponset Greenway in the Little City section of town.

Two years ago, Erin Moriarty, an H-K HS Class of 2009 alum began a campaign to have the State consider purchasing the land as a preserve.  The Kuiaski Property Estate was then on the market for $300,000 to be sold as building lots.

Moriarty, who lives in Burlington, Vermont, set up Friends of Kuiaski Estate Property Preservation on Facebook to rally supporters.

The trailhead is in the Reisman Trail cul de sac in Higganum with parking available there. There is a small wooden sign, “Kuiaski Reserve” at the head. The trail is marked by yellow blazes on trees.   There is a very secluded lake about 1.4 miles out. The total walk the pond and back is about 1.8 miles on a curvy path, some of it narrow, but mostly wide.
