A hike along the Royal Hemlock Trail

Join Bidwell House Museum Trustees Rob Hoogs and Tom Ryan as they lead 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. Click here for the full Housatonic Heritage Walks 2021 Brochure.
