Take a Hike!

Nature Hike

Sunday November 3, 10:00 a.m. at Tyler Mill

Back by popular demand!

It’s Sunday, November 3rd. You turned your clock back, went to bed, and woke up bright and early in the morning. What should you do with that extra hour? TAKE A HIKE! Some of you have missed being outdoors with us, so please join members of the Conservation Commission at Tyler Mill at 10:00 for an hour of gentle family hiking. Those who wish may continue on for a longer hike until noon.

Take a right on Northford Rd. off of East Center St. Take your first right onto Tyler Mill Rd. and continue to parking areas near the bridge. We will be there to meet you! Please wear good sturdy shoes and dress to be in the woods, with warm clothes for a chilly autumn day. Please bring some water to drink during our hike, and leave your dogs at home. We’ll show you where the trails are, and you can come back another time and hike with your family dog!
