      Located off Route 125 and Dibble Hill Road, Ballyhack Preserve was named for the steep wooded ravine along Baldwin Brook. The Ballyhack contains 200 year old white pine and hemlock trees, including Connecticut's second tallest tree (143 foot, 31 inch diameter). Dense stands of mountain laurel, the Connecticut state flower, can also be found.

      In 1969, The Nature Conservancy acquired this 55-acre property and transferred it to the Cornwall Conservation trust in 2005. It was originally called the Woolsey Pines. In 1989 a tornado destroyed a major part of the Cathedral Pines just a few miles south of Ballyhack. The majority of the giant old growth and secondary old growth are now present on the Ballyhack property.
