The Killingworth Land Conservation Trust continues to develop an extensive trail system on the property suitable for walking, horses and cross-country skiing. Well behaved dogs are allowed on the trails.
DOGS MUST BE ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES. Security cameras are in use and will be used to identify offenders. Dog waste clean up continues to be a problem in the fields and on the trails. There are numerous dog waste bag receptacles and disposal cans. Please respect the Farm by keeping it clean.
The 132-acre Parmelee Farm is adjacent to Cockaponsett State Forest to the east.
