On the Royal Hemlock Trail – A Hike Through Township #1
September 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Each year, the Bidwell House Museum is excited to participate in the Housatonic Heritage Walk series that takes place throughout the Berkshires and northern Connecticut. This year the Museum will be offering three guided walks, the first on September 2 with Richard Greene titled On the Royal Hemlock Trail – A Hike Through Township #1. On this guided walk across the Bidwell grounds as well as the BNRC’s Hudson-Howard property, visitors will trace the route of the early residents of Township No. 1 from their homes to the 1st meeting house on a hill near the Museum. Dr. Richard Greene will lead the group on old roadways, past foundations and stone walls of long-ago homesteads, and explore flora and fauna along the way.
Please dress for the weather, wear hiking boots & bring water and a snack. This walk will last 2-3 hours and will traverse approximately four miles. Be aware that the terrain is steep and rocky in a few places. The walk will happen in light rain but will not go if heavy showers or thunderstorms are forecast.
**Note – this is a strenuous hike and is best for those with some hiking experience**
