Hidden Valley Farm

In 2013, East Haddam Land Trust acquired an easement on about 45 acres of land along the Moodus River from Gary and Donna Bogan and thus helped fulfill a 30-year EHLT goal of protecting property along the Moodus River. At this time EHLT also purchased 1-1/2 acres from the Bogans to use as a trailhead, for parking, and for fishing access.


The easement acreage protects approximately 4200 feet of the Moodus River, two historic former dams and mill races that were once part of the twine industry in Moodus, and provides fishing access along the river.


In exchange for a $200,000 grant from the Town of East Haddam to East Haddam Land Trust, the Town has an additional easement on the property that provides further protection that this acreage will remain protected and also have public access.

Hidden Valley Farms is accessible from Grist Mill Road. Parking is available in a small lot adjacent to the Moodus River

Easy hiking trails meander through woods, meadows, wetlands, along the Moodus River for fishing and wildlife observation, and connect Grist Mill Road with Clark Gates Road.
