This area encompasses part of the largest wetland in the Town of Wilton, the Miller swamp. Developed and maintained by the Wilton Wildlife Preserve and Park, the Neilman Parcel adds to the open space in Saratoga County. The trailhead has a kiosk with trail maps and information about the natural environment. The trails are flat and are great for an easy nature walk with the kids. See how many invertebrates and amphibians you can spot. This area is home to deer, Pileated Woodpeckers, Red Fox and the Eastern Spadefoot Toad.
