The McLean Game Refuge manages over 4,200 acres as Wildlands and is the oldest and largest contiguous Wildland in Connecticut.

Protected in 1932 by Senator George McLean, the preserve lies in north-central Connecticut, a half-hour drive from the state capital of Hartford. With over 20 miles of trails, McLean provides accessible passive recreation for many residents, along with remarkable core forest habitat in a diversity of sandplain and upland habitats.
