Connecticut Audubon Society at Trail Wood


Trail Wood, the former home of writer-naturalist Edwin Way Teale and his wife Nellie, and our Bafflin Sanctuary in Pomfret, were chosen by the editors of Yankee Magazine as the Best Nature Sanctuaries in Connecticut, in May 2013.

Trail Wood's 168 acres are open year-round for hiking.

Truly an amazing Pomfret experience. The sights, sounds and fresh country air is mesmerizing. What wonderfully run programs and people who run them! A must see!

The museum/gift shop is incredible. Great prices on books and gifts. Awesome artwork and taxidermy animals for viewing. The trails are great, you can easily spend a full day exploring. I saw birds that are very difficult to just see in your back yard, they were worth the trip.

Beautiful, tranquil location to see birds. Saw a blue bird and golden finches.

A nice Audubon sanctuary with a variety of woodlands, meadows, and fields that are planted with crops. A couple of brooks pass through the property. The focus of the property is being a bird sanctuary, and it is a great spot for birdwatchers.
