Please join us for our free guided trail walks on Thursdays. All walks are at 10:00AM unless stated to the contrary. We will visit various local conservation properties, including some of our own Westerly Land Trust preserves. Walks are between 1 1/2 and 3 hours and are open to all ages with our target group being agile seniors. Please keep in mind that these are wooded trails with stumps, roots and rocks to be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction or snowshoes. Be aware that our hikes leave promptly so be on time!
One of the few undeveloped stretches of Connecticut coastline. Bluff Point is a treasure with a rich history. For the 5-mile walk, bring warm clothing and sturdy shoes. Some sections may be muddy. From I-95 S, take exit 88; turn left on Rte 117 and right on Rte 1 at the second light; then, at the next light, turn left on Depot Rd; follow this street past Industrial Rd and under the railroad tracks; a dirt road leads ahead to the large parking lot and closed gate.
