Old Mystic Ridge

Old Mystic Ridge is a unique 26.01-acre parcel located on Benjamin Stanton Pentway in Old Mystic.  Although it has frontage on four roads, Route 27, Jerry Browne Road, Benjamin Stanton Pentway and Nautilus Way, public access is via Benjamin Stanton Pentway, through the stone wall entryway. 

Once on the preserve, you'll notice the quiet!  As you walk along the winding trail through the woodland, you'll view spectacular iconic ledges, glacial erratics and beautiful historic stone walls.  You'll also find a small abandoned quarry and two footbridges – one crosses over a small seasonal stream.  The other crosses over a rock-lined swale that has the look of an ancient man-made waterway.  

Overall, on this preserve, you'll find unusual and unexpected scenery! 

This property was acquired on April 2, 2019, and is open to the public daily from dawn to dusk.

You may access this preserve via Benjamin Stanton Pentway.
