      Atkinson Family Preserve/Thompson Brook Preserve is a relatively newly trailed property that encompasses a network of trails, including various loops. Parking is not immediately obvious but is located on the east side of Long Cove Road, along a roped off gravel road along power lines. Access to the trail system is through the roped off section. Going up the gravel road to the left takes you to the entrance for the blue loop and red loop trails. Look for diamond shaped trail markers that are color-coded (blue, red, and yellow markers, respectively), to help guide your hike. The packed earth and dirt trails are wide, ranging from 3 feet to wide open. Historic stonewalls and other rock features create a fascinating scene amongst the dense forest. You are sure to see blue jays and other birds, in addition to squirrels and white tail deer. The Explorer app will help navigate through tricky areas. Given the elevation changes of 200+ feet and over 3.5 miles of trail distance, this is an easy-moderate hike with occasional exposed rocks and roots. Also of note, Atkinson Family Preserve/Thompson Brook Preserve offers the opportunity for mountain bikers to get a good work out in. Pets are permitted (dogs on leash)
