A Labor Day weekend hike at its River Road Preserve will be hosted by the Roxbury Land Trust.

The 57-acre preserve borders the eastern bank of the Shepaug River, and affords beautiful views of the river, farmlands and hemlock-covered knolls.

The trail starts at the parking lot along River Road and overlooks a large pond.

The trail also connects to the Erbacher, Golden Harvest and Orzech family preserves. Together, these four preserves protect nearly 600 acres and two miles of the Shepaug River.
