Forge Pond Conservation Area by Greg Stone

Go Take a Hike!

The Westport Land Conservation Trust (WLCT) cordially invites you to go take a hike

Autumn is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy Westport’s natural landscapes. The temperatures are cool, the leaves are turning beautiful colors and wildlife is busy preparing for winter. Westport has many unique landscapes, and the Westport Land Conservation Trust invites you to get outside and explore! 

Go enjoy a nice walk in the woods at Headwaters Conservation Area. Learn to fish at Forge Pond Conservation Area, or fly a kite at Westport Woods Park. Go bird watching at Herb Hadfield Conservation Area or step back in time at Old Harbor Wildlife Refuge. All of these wonderful, relaxing outdoor activities are made possible in Westport–and all for free! So, take your family and friends, get outside, and take a hike!



Special places don’t stay special on their own. Our dedicated volunteers make sure every one of our destination properties is ready for your next adventure.
