The Minson Tract is one of two Land Trust properties in Montville, Connecticut, the other is the White Oak Preserve. This property was acquired by donation in September of 2000. At just over 18 acres the land is mostly forested with a mix of open brush and grassland along the access road. A long arm of the property stretches down to the Thames River. As of this writing there is a parking spot, but no formal trails. Click on the map below for directions (located off of Massapeag Road).
