Royal Hemlock Trail Hike at the Bidwell House Museum

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
A hike along the Royal Hemlock Trail

Join Bidwell House Museum Trustee Richard Greene as he leads you on a walk on the Bidwell House Museum grounds as well as the BNRC’s Hudson-Howard property. This hike traces the route of the early residents of Township No. 1 from their homes to the 1st meeting house on a hill near the Museum. This walk will take you down old roadways, past foundations and stone walls of long-ago homesteads, and allow you to explore flora and fauna along the way. Terrain is steep and rocky in a few places. The walk is approximately 4 miles and will take around 3 hours. Wear appropriate shoes and bring water and a snack. This walk does not include a tour of the museum interior but an inside tour can be arranged by appointment.

This walk is part of the 2021 Housatonic Heritage Walks series
