The Pappenheimer Preserve was donated to the Trust in 2005 by Sarah Pappenheimer and her brother John. One hundred and one acres of mostly level forest land and marsh are bounded to the north by an additional 700 acres of protected land, the Mohegan State Forest. A map of the property and trails is available here.
The property has belonged to the family for several generations and has been used for grazing and timber cutting, both of which may continue during the lifetimes of the donors.
Visitors should be aware that when in season, hunting is allowed in the adjacent Mohegan State Forest, and take suitable precautions.
