Join us for our free-guided trail walks on Thursdays. Walks are between 1 ½ to 3 hours and 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. Make sure you bring water and maybe a snack. Be aware that our hikes leave promptly so be on time!

All hikers are required to wear 200 square inches of solid daylight fluorescent orange in State Management areas from the second Saturday in September to the last day of February and the third Saturday in April to the last day in May, annually.

Hike is approximately 3 miles in the Green Falls area of Pachaug State Forest. On this hike you will find old stone foundations, an old cemetery, a forested marsh and mountain laurel in abundance. From Westerly you travel on Rte 49 North where you come to State Forest Road/Fish Road on the right at a curve (there is a small sign on the right that reads “Green Falls Entrance”). Turn Right onto Fish Road and travel approximately 1 mile, pull-off parking area is on the right.
