Fall Foliage Hike at Mount Nimham Fire Tower

Sunday, October 20, 1pm

No need to drive too far to enjoy the best of fall colors; nothing beats seeing the brilliance of autumn from the top of Mount Nimham Fire Tower!

Join the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee for the annual fall foliage hike. Meet at the DEC parking area on Mount Nimham Court at 1pm for a ramble up a woodland trail past farm ruins, a stone chamber and a peaceful forest. As we hike up the mountain we’ll see subtle changes in vegetation, the woodlands carpeted by ferns of different hues, and and lots of evidence of this year’s abundant crop of nuts. Once at the top, we’ll have time to enjoy the view from the tower. Return will be along the gravel access road, completing a walk of less than two miles.

It is extraordinarily beautiful right here in our home town. Come join this excursion through autumn, learn some history and meet some new neighbors.

Hikers should wear sturdy shoes for a few rock scrambles and bring water. Heavy rain would cancel the hike with an email alert to Kent CAC hikes subscribers and a posting on our home page by noon that day. Call Beth at 228-5635 for more information.
