June 4th 2011 , Connecticut Trails Day for the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, proved to be a glorious day for a Land Alliance sponsored hike on Brad and Mimi Borden’s property on Swantown Hill Road in North Stonington. Brad Borden, former board member of the North Stonington Citizens Land Alliance, graciously showed us the trails he has created on his 121 acre property. Led by Land Alliance members Bill Hixson and Tim Crandall, we walked through the woods, fields, and across streams . Iced tea and cookies on their patio afterward capped off an enjoyable outing for the dozen or so hikers .

The weather brightened up, the lady slippers were in bloom and their peacock put on quite a show for us. Actually he was trying to impress the chickens. We walked along Spalding Pond and next door to the Stephenson's property.
