5K Trail at Phillips Farm Preserve

The Southbury Land Trust (SLT) has completed a new 5K course which runners, hikers, walkers are all welcome to come enjoy from dawn until dusk every day. The 3.1 mile trek extends into the Lovdal Farm Preserve and traverses a number of farm fields, wooded trails, and old farm roads.

SLT President Joe Ruggiero stated “We think this is the first permanent 5K off-road course in Southbury.
