Thursday Hike at Great Swamp, Kingstown

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

FREE

Join us for our free, guided trail walks on Thursdays. We will visit various local conservation properties, including some of our Westerly Land Trust preserves. Walks are between 1 ½ to 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 so be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. All walks are at 10:00 AM unless otherwise noted. Our hikes leave promptly so please arrive on time.

The five-mile loop is on a peninsula of high ground rising 80 feet above Worden Pond and the surrounding swamp. Most of the trails are gravel roads. The footing is solid, and the slopes are gentle. Directions: Liberty Lane leads south from Rte 138 – 200 yards west of the junction of Rtes 138 and 110. Follow the lane 2 miles, past the Great Swamp management headquarters to the parking area at the dead end. Leader: Sally Hanson, 401-348-9109 and email: sally.hanson@verizon.net  N 41º 28.143’ W 71º 34.786’
