Mount Nimham Fall Foliage Family Hike

Sunday, Oct 14, 2012, 10:30 AM

Finally! Nice weather for a hike. Enjoy a pleasant, moderate family hike through the woods capped by a climb up the restored 90-foot fire tower.

Meet at the Mount Nimham DEC parking lot on Gypsy Trail Rd. We’ll hike about one mile through the Nimham forest to the DEC gate at the end of Mt. Nimham Court and then through the woods another 0.7 miles to the tower. This is a moderate hike, nothing very steep, but it’s more or less all uphill on the way to the tower. The elevation gain is about 500 feet.

It’s hunting season, so wear bright clothing and stay together. Bring lunch and beverage and wear comfortable hiking boots.

If we have to postpone for bad weather I’ll send an email to Kent CAC hikes subscribers and post the news on our home page about an hour before the scheduled start. For further details contact Dave by phone at 878-7592 or by email.
