From the Orange Land Trust:

The Orange Land Trust will host a guided hike of the Turkey Hill Preserve on Saturday, June 21.

Meet in the parking lot at 300 Derby Milford Road (GPS address), opposite Turkey Hill Road at 9:30 a.m.

Orange’s largest open space site offers 376 acres of old growth forest, ledges, ridges, vernal pools, gorges, streams, ponds, shallow waterways, and a wide variety of plants and wildlife.

This is a moderate to challenging hike, so please wear appropriate footwear as there are some rocky areas and some “ups and downs” in the trail. We recommend hiking boots/shoes or shoes/sneakers with a good tread. A good hiking stick or trekking pole(s) can be helpful.

This free hike, conducted by volunteers of the Orange Land Trust, is not at all difficult for those who are sure-footed and fit and presents an opportunity to reconnect with our town’s history and beauty. All are welcome and please bring a friend.

So, grab your hiking gear and plan to join us! Only steady rain showers will cancel.

For information, call Chris at 203-397-7599.
