Thursday Hike: Wahaneeta Preserve/Woody Hill Management Area

Thursday February 17th @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us for our free-guided trail walks on Thursdays.  Walks 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. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction. If a lot of snow bring snowshoes. Be aware that our hikes leave promptly so be on time!

This is a walking tour of the WLT’s Wahaneeta Preserve and a small section of the adjoining Woody Hill Management Area. This hike will be about 3 miles long, wooded single-trach trails. We will go past old stone foundations, wells, a historical cemetery, and several streams.

Directions: Parking will be available @ Wahaneeta Preserve, 118 Moorhouse Road, Westerly. The gate will be open; drive through the gate and park in the field @ Wahaneeta.

To sign up please contact leader: Jeff Walker, 401-447-1879 email: [email protected]
