Connecticut Trails Weekend Hike
Farmington Memorial Town Forest
Sunday, June 7th at 1 pm
There aren't many places in Connecticut where you can hike to the site of a World II fighter pilot's crash. FLT board member and past president Doug Pelham will lead a hike at the 266-acre Farmington Memorial Town Forest, established in 1926 to honor the men and women who served in World War I. In addition, it's a great place to explore. "I really like the solitude of the place," Doug says. "You go in there and lose yourself; it's pretty nice to find a place like that so close to home." After an hour-long walk, you are free to further explore on you own.
Meet at the Farmington Memorial Town Forest's Plainville Avenue (route 177) entrance across from Snowberry Lane and Autumn Way Developments, south of Coppermine Road.
This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. No pets please.
Heavy rain cancels.
