New Year’s Day Hike

Thursday, January 1, 12pm

Start the new year with nature and neighbors!

Join members of the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee for their annual hike on the first day of January. Meet at 12pm in the DEC parking area on Gypsy Trail Road for a walk in the Nimham Mountain State Forest. There is ample parking, fields, forest and a pond. This easy one-mile hike meanders through meadows, conifer plantations and around a beautiful pond. Its proximity to thousands of contiguous wild acres can make for interesting animal tracks. It is an extraordinarily beautiful place right here in our home town. Come join this excursion through the winter and start the new year in nature.

Wear good hiking shoes for a few rock scrambles, and bring water. A light snowfall would provide a canvas for animal tracks, but an icy coating or severe weather would postpone the hike with an email alert by 10am that day, or call 228-5635.
