Kent CAC Fall Foliage Hike to Mount Nimham Fire Tower

Sunday, October 13, 11:00 am

No need to drive 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 their annual fall foliage walk. Meet at the parking area on Mount Nimham Court (map) at 11 am for a ramble up a woodland trail past farm ruins, stone shelters, and a peaceful forest. The climb up the mountain is mirrored in the subtle changes in vegetation. We’ll see the woodlands carpeted by ferns of different hues, and an abundance of nuts. Once at the top, we’ll take time to enjoy the view from the tower. Return is along the gravel access road completing the walk in less than two miles.

Wear good hiking shoes for a few rock scrambles, and bring water. Heavy rain cancels. If the weather gets iffy, check our facebook page, Kent Conservation Advisory Committee, our website, or call 845-235-1207 after 9:30 AM.
