Visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of Butterfield Lake from atop the dramatic bluff on the Redwood Hill Preserve. Densely wooded in a mix of hardwoods and white pines, the Preserve offers the perfect opportunity for bird watchers and nature enthusiasts to get outdoors all year long.
The Redwood Hill Preserve was established in 2014 thanks to the generosity of Elliott and Marjorie Hillback, who donated the 51 acres to provide a place for environmental education and public recreation programs. Construction was completed on a Trailside Classroom in 2016 where IRLC offers public programs and community events.
Two loop trails that wind along the top of a sandstone bluff and past ancient oaks are open to visitors from dawn to dusk year round. These foot paths will be converted to accessible trails in 2017, providing a unique opportunity for parents with strollers, veterans in wheelchairs, grandparents with walkers and people from all walks of life to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the North Country woodlands.
