Thursday Hike: Riverwood Preserve, Westerly
Thursday April 13th @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This property is part of the Westerly Land Trust’s Pawcatuck River Corridor Initiative. It consists of 148 acres of woodland, rocky ridges and fresh water wetlands adjacent to the Pawcatuck River and the Boy Scout Camp. It has interesting quarry remnants, river views and descent through a beautiful gorge. Some climbing in rocky areas may be involved as the best views are from the higher elevations. Meet on Old Hopkinton Road at the end of Boy Scout Drive. Please park along the road – we will walk into the preserve from there.
To sign up, contact hike leader: Marc Doherty, (401) 315-2610, ext. 4 (w), (508) 308-9787 (c), and email: [email protected]
Thursday hikes are FREE. Be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction. If a lot of snow bring snowshoes. Hikes leave promptly.
- Ending times are estimated as it difficult to ascertain when it will finish due to number of people, how fast/slow the hikers walk, etc.
- 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.
- Inclement weather cancels and if in doubt, contact leader.
- If you wish to bring a dog please contact the leader as some properties do not allow them. However, if a dog is present, they must be leashed at all times.
