The Best Self-Care Indulgences for the Spring

Spring has officially arrived in Ridgefield! The transition into sunnier days is upon us (although New England has a way of teasing us!) and that means life is about to kick into full gear. Before the shuffle to spring sports and the abundance of activities begin, take some much-deserved time to focus on your personal self-care routine. Here’s what we found in Ridgefield to help get you feeling your best so you can conquer all the rest!

Take on the Trails

This time of year, everyone’s eager to stretch those legs and get outdoors. Ridgefield offers abundant hiking trails, nature paths, and parks so that every member of our community can access the natural beauty this town boasts.

Take on Pine Mountain Reserve to see Ridgefield from its highest point! If you’re in the mood for a more moderate adventure, head to the Brewster Farm and Jones Trail for stunning views of The Hickories Farm and the surrounding wetlands and wooded landscapes.

If you’re feeling like you could use the sound of running water to clear your mind, make your way to Seth Low Pierrepont State Park for amazing views and outlets all around the pond. No matter how you prefer to experience nature, Ridgefield will not disappoint!
