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. Our hikes leave promptly so please arrive on time.

You won’t want to miss this scenic hike! We’ll traverse a hemlock-wooded gorge that leads to a 60 feet waterfall, then a lake-side trail to a deciduous forest, past the remains of a spool mill, and over interesting rock formations. This walk of about 4.5 miles is moderate to strenuous. From Exit 92 on I-95 take Rte 49 North. After crossing Rte 184 go 6.7 miles (.5 miles beyond the Voluntown town line) to Sand Hill Road. Turn right on this small road and continue 1.6 miles to the trailhead where there is adequate parking.
In State Management areas everyone is required to wear 200 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the last Thursday in April to the last day in May, annually. However, 500 sq. inch by all hunters (including archers) and all users of management areas and undeveloped state parks during all portions of shotgun deer seasons.
