3.5 miles


Family friendly, moderate-paced hike through Guilford’s East River Preserve, led by the chair of the Guilford Conservation Commission, and co-hosted by Connecticut AMC. The hike will begin at the Sullivan Drive entrance within sight of the tidal East River running along the edge of successional grasslands. It will then continue into a wooded area containing glacial erratics and wetlands before heading north through upland forest. We will cross the interior of the property so that we can connect with the New England National Scenic Trail, allowing us to return to the starting point.
