General Nathanial Lyon “History Hike” on the Natchaug Trail

November 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Chief Ranger Bill Reid for a walk on the Natchaug Trail to enjoy a beautiful section of the trail and learn about Civil War Veteran General Nathaniel Lyon. We’ll start at the Nathaniel Lyon Memorial Park on Kingsbury Road in Eastford. From there we’ll hike north on the Natchaug trail for just more than 2.5 miles to General Lyon Road and the Phoenixville Cemetery where Lyon is buried. His grave site includes a large monument and Civil War cannons. We’ll learn about his role in the Civil War, his heroic death, and the large delegation of dignitaries who attended his memorial service.
