OptOutside Natchaug Forest Hike on Nov. 25

Before you rush into the holiday frenzy, enjoy some peace and fresh air with TLGV as part of the national OptOutside effort Friday, November 25th 10:00 AM at Natchaug State Forest, Eastford. Chief Ranger Bill Reid will lead a hike in beautiful Natchaug State Forest through and area filled with significant history and plentiful natural beauty. We’ll meet at the Natchaug State Forest Parking area off of Route 198 and cross the Natchaug River to the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) Trail and Natchaug Trail to General Lyon Memorial Park, where we will take a short break. From there we will hike the Natchaug Trail to the CCC Camp on Kingsbury Road and then walk the Natchaug Forest service road back to the parking area. This hike is moderate hike of just over 2 miles. The terrain includes moderate inclines and declines and has some shorter steep sections. There will be protruding rocks and roots with some water crossings.
