White Hills Open Space in Shelton Damaged by ATVs

Jul 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Land

There are no official trails at the French’s Hill open space. This property is located in the White Hills across the street from East Village Park. The potential has always been there, though, because the property is over 110 acres, plenty of space for a trail. Parking was an obstacle until a few years ago when an adjacent property was acquired that included a large existing parking lot directly off of East Village Road.

French’s Hill, located in the White Hills section of Shelton, has been damaged by ATV trails and spray paint. Conservation Agent Teresa Gallagher submitted a post to the Shelton Patch, and the photos are from the Shelton Trails Committee blog.

The front part of French’s Hill, along East Village Road, consists of a geologic drumlin that is currently farmed under license to the City, but the majority of the property is heavily wood and was free from any kind of trails. Until now.
