About this Location

The Knights Hill Nature Park Trail System provides public access to lands owned by the New London Outing Club (NLOC) and protected by New London Conservation Commission conservation easements. Parking is available in a parking area off County Road. The park is a nature sanctuary, dedicated to the aesthetic appreciation, conservation, and scientific study of nature. "A sanctuary for nature and wildlife where humans are guests."

The kiosk at the entrance has self-guiding brochures which include a description of the nature trail. The brochure also contains a fold-out map of the trails. Markers identify trees, wildflowers, and ferns along the self-guiding nature trail. In the summer, naturalist programs are available to the public for 8 weeks, from late June to early August.
