      The Rockhouse Hill Sanctuary (RHS) is 600, town-owned acres of preserved, forested watershed of Four Mile Brook and the Housatonic River. The Town and the Oxford Land Trust share land-management responsibilities. Over the last 10 years, 15 miles of trails have been developed and upgraded by the Oxford High School Youth Conservation Corps (OHS YCC), through Boy Scout Eagle projects, and by members of the Land Trust. Tens of thousands of volunteer hours have been invested and additional work has been ongoing.


      Funds for trail development have been provided by the Town of Oxford, the State of Connecticut, the Valley Community Foundation, the Oxford Denzler Foundation and through private donations. Materials and work have been donated by Earthworks and the Town of Oxford.
