The Let Conservation Area

The Let Conservation Area is unique for WLCT, in that the only public access is provided by water from the East Branch of the Westport River.

This forested preserve boasts wide smooth trails for much of their distance as they traverse the interior of this property. The landing – and therefore trailhead – is a granite knob and adjacent salt marsh that provide a great picnic spot, excellent salt marsh bird watching and beautiful westerly and southerly views of Horseneck Channel and the East Branch. This stunning river front property was protected and opened to the public in 2009 through a land gift by Barbara and Elliot Schildkrout.

Directions: Located on the east side of the river between The Let and Horseneck Channel. Look for the WLCT sign strategically located on the tip of the rock landing.
