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 members of the Town of Kent Conservation Advisory Committee for their annual fall foliage walk on Saturday, October 15, 2022. Meet at the parking area on Mount Nimham Court at 10 am for a ramble up a woodland trail past farm ruins, and stone shelters, through 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. Keep your eyes open for any wildlife that may be nearby. Once at the top, we’ll take time to enjoy the view from the historic fire lookout tower, last used by forest rangers in 1978. The return route will be along the blue trail or via the gravel access road, both returning to the parking area, completing the walk in approximately two miles.
Wear good hiking shoes and bring water. We also recommend using insect repellent for ticks. We will take brief breaks. No one will be left behind. Dogs are welcome on a leash.
Heavy rain cancels. If the weather gets iffy, please check the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee webpage, the Kent Conservation Advisory Committee page on Facebook, or call 914-671-2764
