      Barrett Preserve is a beautiful, short hiking trail located in the Gales Ferry neighborhood in Ledyard that offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors on a well-marked trail with yellow trail heads. Immediately upon entering the preserve, you are welcomed to finely groomed grass paths with bird boxes and houses spread throughout. The grass paths are only a short portion of the preserve, as it quickly turns into a wooded area (down a hillside of oak, hickory, and black birch). Further on the trail is a wetland area, featuring a large stand of giant tulip trees.
