Orzech Family Preserve

Hikers may walk 2 miles along the Kress Family Trail along the Shepaug River. At approximately 0.25 mile in, a trail on the right sweeps up through the wooded hillside bringing hikers into the upper Orzech field with two ponds, a bench and sweeping views.

As part of the Roxbury Land Trust’s “Save Our Farms” campaign, the Orzech Preserve was acquired in 2002 from Edward F. Orzech and Elizabeth M. Orzech, whose family established their farm there in 1924.
