Are you looking for ways to gather safely with family this Thanksgiving? Consider a walk or hike outdoors! (Remember to wear a mask and keep your distance.) Here are our recommendations for outdoor spaces that are suitable for all ages:
**NOTE: Hunting is allowed on all LELT lands. Please wear blaze orange when visiting LELT preserves & trails.**
A relatively flat, one-mile loop trail on the preserve features benches and rock walls. A great place for a stroll in the woods.
Check out the new trail built to universal access standards at Peabody-Fitch Woods. Just half a mile, this trail is flat, gravel surfaced, and has benches along the way. Explore the grounds of Narramissic after you’re done. Head up the quarry trail for more of a challenge & a look back in time.
An easy-moderate hike that rewards you with great views on the way up & at the top. Park in the main parking area off of Route 107, and head up the Bob Chase Scenic Loop to the summit.
Although the gate is closed for the season you are welcome to walk up (take your time, it’s steep!). This preserve features fields for kids to run around in, picnic tables, and amazing views. Pro-tip: bring a kite if it’s windy!
Note: limited parking available.
The Spiller Homestead Loop at RCF offers interpretive signs that will teach you about what you’re seeing in the woods as you walk. Looking for a challenge? Head up the Pismire Bluff Trail for great views of Crescent Lake.
