Thursday Hike: Cottrell Family Preserve, Westerly

Thursday October 20th

Cottrell Family Preserve is new to the WLT so this will be our first visit with this group. Hike starts at 10 AM. Cottrell is 21 acres which is boarded on the north by the Pawcatuck River and on the south by the Westerly Ton Forest. It will be a moderate woods walk. Preserve is within walking distance of Flora Whitely Preserve at the Potter Hill bridge on Potter Hill Road.

Parking– we will meet at Flora Whitely Preserve.

To sign up, please contact Hike Leader: David Prigmore, (401)348-2855, and email: [email protected]


Fluorescent orange safety clothing is required during the hunting season statewide. To meet this requirement, hikers must wear 200 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the third Saturday in April to the last day in May, annually. Fluorescent camouflage does not meet this requirement. The fluorescent orange must be worn above the waist and be visible in all directions.

Due to the coronavirus:

  • We realize lots of people have concerns about getting together. Therefore, please sign up with leader so that person will know how many are coming. If no one signs up the leader may not show up.
  • Social distancing of 6’ apart.
  • Everyone needs to have a face mask in case it is needed.
  • Carpooling is up to the leader. Keep in mind some folks may be uncomfortable having someone share their vehicle. An alternate way is to caravan.
