The Couch Preserve is an 17.7-acre parcel left to Joshua’s Trust in 1996 as a bequest of Elizabeth Couch. It provides oak and hickory forest habitat. The loop trail slopes gently from the road to a hemlock grove at the northeast boundary.

The Town of Coventry has acquired two adjacent properties, the Williams Parcel and the Rose Parcel. Together, these properties protect significant watershed.
