Turkey Trot at Riverwood Preserve, Westerly

Friday November 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving and all of the food has been eaten – now, come hike it all off! This property is part of the Westerly Land Trust’s Pawcatuck River Corridor Initiative. It consists of 148 acres of woodland, rocky ridges and freshwater 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.

Directions: Please park along Old Hopkinton Road OR in the Faith Bible Chapel parking lot– everyone should meet at the intersection of Old Hopkinton Rd and Boy Scout Drive, we will walk into the preserve there.

Co-Leaders: Sally Hanson, (401) 348-9109 (h), (401) 932-5295 (c), and email: [email protected] and Judy Simpanen, (401) 601-5601, and email: [email protected]
