Also known as Lucius Pond Ordway/Devil's Den Preserve, this is the Nature Conservancy Connecticut Chapter's largest contiguous preserve and is ideal for outdoor recreation.

The preserve was established by the late Katharine Ordway, an heiress of the 3M fortune, through a series of donations from 1966 through 1968, beginning with a 1,300-acre purchase from the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company. It is said that it got its name because of some of the bear print marks on rocks, which supposedly look like they have been burned by the devil's hot feet.
